Here are three simple ways to incorporate #FireSmart into your summer yard maintenance routine:

1. Keep your grass mowed! Mow grass and weeds, within 10 metres of your house and structures to 10 centimetres in length, or less.

3. Maintain a 1.5 metre non-combustible surface around your home and around/under decks by sweeping or raking down to mineral soil, rock or concrete, and removing all combustibles and plant material from this zone.
