Home Ignition Zone
April 28 or May 10, 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Breakthrough research has shown that most homes destroyed by wildfire are first ignited by embers and small flames. Attendees will learn how to take steps to harden their Home Ignition Zone to better protect it from the threat of wildfire. The area closest to the home, the Immediate Zone (0' to 5'), is the area must vulnerable to embers and radiant heat.
