For the next several months, Chemeketa Firewise is providing a monthly "to do" list to maintain a defensible space and harden your home against flying embers.  

Last month, June, the focus was on the First Five Feet - clearing all flammables within 5 feet of your house.  This is the ember-resistant zone (Zone 0) which science has proven to be extremely important.  

The focus for July is Lean, Green, and Mean.  Please click on the link below to read about how to create a defensible space that protects your family, home, and firefighters.  Let's all work together.
