As the weather gets warmer and people spend more time in nature, there is a risk that wildfires are started. Wildfires are a normal part of the cycle of growth, but because of man’s influence the balance is off, sometimes leading to uncontrollable wildfires that do lots of damage to homes and property. With heavy winds and large fires, you might be unable to get enough warning to prepare well.
Keeping this in mind, it is wise to prepare well for the eventuality that fire comes your way.
One source of fuel for a wildfire is dried up vegetation. If you have a fence that collects a lot of leaves and branches, this can make it easier for a fire to spread to your home. Even the fence itself could serve as fuel if it is made out of wood.
Clearing away shrubs and trees near your home can help you stay safe in case of a wildfire in the area where you live.
