Protect Your Home from Wildfires: Sonoma County Firefighters Share Ember Protection Plan for Summer Safety

Your hometown emergency responders from the Professional Fire Fighters of Sonoma County are devoted to keeping our local communities safe. With summer in full swing, Wildfire Safety is one of our top priorities. We do not want history to repeat itself, so we must be proactive by remaining safe through preparedness. Being prepared means being safe and can save countless lives. So let's start by talking about establishing an Ember Protection Plan effectively.

Safeguard your home against the risks of wildfires with an Ember Protection Plan! The initial area to concentrate on is your immediate zone, extending 0-5 feet from the farthest point of your house.

Make sure to clean your roof and gutters from debris, also verify that your shingles are tightly fastened, and incorporate a 1/8 inch metal mesh on all vents.

Do not overlook the need to repair damaged window screens and seal off areas under patios and decks.

Lastly, maintain a safe distance from your walls for flammable substances such as mulch, plants, and firewood piles.

Rest assured that we will always respond when you need your hometown emergency responders.
