With a wildfire approaching
Fire crews have 3 to 5 minutes to determine if your home has enough defensible space to survive an approaching wildfire based on preparation of your property.

Property lacking any preparation or needing extensive fuel reduction is usually passed by due to limited resources in order to save as many homes as possible
