Wildfire Safety Tips
Tips for homeowners living in the High Sonoran Desert to prevent damage to your property from wildfires:
- Establish a “defensible safety zone.” Around your home or property, remove dry and dead vegetation so as to prevent highly flammable materials from collecting near your home.
- Maintain your trees. Trim the canopies and remove dead branches or accumulations of flash fuels and leaves below the tree. This is especially important within the “defensible safety zone.”
- Clear areas beneath wooden decks and overhangs of flammable items such as foliage.
- Keep gutters, eaves, and roofs clear of debris.
High Sonoran Deserts are an integral part of our community, providing diverse wildlife and immense beauty. However, their dry and significant vegetation also possesses the potential for wildfires.
