Clean your roof and gutters
Branches near your roof or leaves clogged in your gutters make it easier for embers to ignite your home. Simply trimming and removing these fuel sources will reduce the risk of damages caused by fire.
Move firewood and propane 10-30 metres away from your home
Fire will have a harder time coming to your door if fuel sources are far from it. Keep your grass cut below 10cm, and move any potential ignition sources a safe distance from your home.
Have a wildfire evacuation plan for your household.
Don't wing it. Having a simple evacuation plan is easy to do and makes a world of difference.
