More than half of Colorado residents live with some risk of a wildfire negatively impacting their property. Fire mitigation strategies are essential for reducing the risk of wildfire damage. Fire mitigation strategies vary but usually include removing trees, shrubs, and other vegetation that could act as kindling for a fire. There are a number of steps that can be taken to create a defensive zone around your property, and hiring a company that specializes in fire mitigation can help you to accomplish this important responsibility. Protecting your home from a wildfire is an ongoing and comprehensive responsibility, and choosing the right fire mitigation company is a critical first step.
When choosing a land service company to do fire mitigation on your property, be sure to look for these 3 things:
A Company That Follows Firewise Best Practices
Firewise best practices, a National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) initiative to reduce the risk of home destruction and wildfire spread in the U.S. is the leading educator for homeowners who want to keep their homes and families safe from wildfire. Be sure that the company you hire for fire mitigation knows the Firewise best practices and adheres to them on each project.
The owner and operator of Bear Claw Land Services dedicated his time to learning about proper fire mitigation strategies by meeting with local authorities and spending hours reading Firewise mitigation strategies which he put into practice on his own two-acre mountain property.
Now, we help our clients implement a mitigation strategy for their property that is thorough, and that will give them and their home the best odds of coming out of a wildfire unscathed. We can provide valuable advice on how to cultivate a defensible space around your property, including which types of plants may be more fire-resistant than others.
