FireSmart development standards help manage the wildfire reality by reducing the flammability of structures.
Whether you’re retrofitting an existing community or building a new one you can make strategic choices for building materials and community designs.
- Is the construction of new homes or subdivisions “FireSmart”?
- Assess the infrastructure as it relates to roadway access, water supply, utility placement, building materials and design, and forested areas adjacent and within the community.
FireSmart – Protection Your Community From Wildfire has detailed information on development considerations in Chapter 3: Solutions and Mitigations.
