Living Ready in Wildfire Season
Wild fire season is a very precautionary time for anyone living in an area prone to wild fires. The negative ripple effect of a wild fire to a property owner cannot be underestimated.
The local authority does a very good job in warning property owners on the procedures they need to take in the event of the wild fire or home fire, in the event of an evacuation or containing the fire spread.
We advise that property owners regularly inspect the surrounding of their homes and business for leaky gas pipes, prune dead plants and properly dispose of those, prune overgrown trees; especially any close to power cables, ensure trash is disposed of properly because it can be a perfect fuel agent for fires and finally ensure the access points are free from clutter to allow the emergency services get to the source of the fire quickly.
