Prepare for wildfire season – week 5

Brush, dry leaves, flammable grasses, and flammable plants close to your home can catch fire and spread that fire to your home. Be sure to clear brush and leaves in the immediate home ignition zone, zero to five feet around your home. Then, expand to the intermediate zone, five to 30 feet from your home. Be sure you have the right tools (rake, wheelbarrow). Use your own or borrow them from your local tool library. Learn more at For more prevention tips, go to
