Proactive Wildfire Preparation for Your Business

Wildfires can start without warning and move fast. There are some actions you can take ahead of time, especially during times of high risk. Other actions only make sense once danger is imminent. Here are some steps to take to make sure your business has the best chance of escaping a wildfire unscathed:

  • Mark the Entrance to your property with address signs that are clearly visible from the road.
  • Keep lawns trimmed, leaves raked, and the roof and rain gutters free from debris.
  • Shut off gas at the meter. Only a qualified professional can safely turn the gas back on.
  • Store flammable materials, liquids, and solvents in metal containers. Keep them outside on your property at least 30 feet away from structures and wooden fences.
  • Remove branches hanging above and around your property.
  • Make sure water sources such as ponds and hydrants are accessible to the fire department.
  • Turn off propane tanks.
  • Cover all exterior vents, attics, and eaves with metal mesh screens no larger than 1/4 inch. This can prevent debris from collecting and keep sparks out.
  • Close all interior doors and windows to prevent drafts.
  • Use fire-resistant draperies for added window protection.
