About this event

Is Your Home Prepared for Wildfire?

Join Santa Clara County Fire Department and learn how to reduce wildfire risks in the Home Ignition Zones (HIZ).

Breakthrough research has shown the majority of homes destroyed by wildfire are first ignited by embers and small flames. Take steps to harden your home in the HIZ to better protect it from the threat of wildfire.

The HIZ includes threes sub-zones:

  • Immediate Zone 1 (0' to 5')
  • Intermediate Zone 1 (5' to 30')
  • Extended Zone 3 (30' to 100')

This webinar will focus on how you can make your home more wildfire resistant to embers and the effects of radiant heat in the Immediate Zone (0' to 5').
