CALIFORNIA – Cal Fire is reminding California residents that 100 feet of defensible space can help save your home in the event of a fire. This is not only a recommendation but it is law, Cal Fire officials remind. In 2005 the defensible space clearance law became effective and required homeowners to clear debris up to 100 feet of the home.
Cal Fire officials said that 30 feet all around the home should be clear of any dead of dying leaves, brush or trees. The remaining 70 feet of the 100′ requirement should be cleared of needles, twigs, and branches. The requirement does not require that homeowners have only dirt around their home, green landscape, bricks, concrete or rocks is a great option to protect your home while maintaining the beauty of your home landscaping.
