As a property owner, your three levels of fire protection are:

1.Your property must be prepared to survive the passing of a wildfire on basis of its own merits… this is defensible space.

2.Your second level of fire protection are the built-in systems you have installed to allow you to physically defend your property such as, fire breaks, water storage or water access for fire use, fire extinguishers, fire pump and hose equipment.

3.Your third line of defense is your local fire department

Let us help you improve your 1st line of defense.
