During this class, we will explore techniques for protecting your home and community from damage associated with wildfire. We will look at the construction of the home itself and compare the safety of various building materials. The home is split into several zones regarding fire resistance, and we will go over dos and don’ts within each zone. The area right around the home where it interacts with the landscaping and surrounding forest is also broken into zones, and we will discuss how to make these areas more fire-adapted.
