Making Your Home Fire Safe

UC Homeowner's Wildfire Mitigation Guide

Information in the Homeowner's Wildfire Mitigation Guide was compiled by individuals at the University of California, Berkeley, and is based on the results from laboratory fire tests, observations made during post-fire assessments and input from those who are involved in firefighting. It is important to realize that no house is completely fire proof, but you can make it more fire-safe.

The goal of the information contained in this website is to provide information on how homes ignite and are destroyed during wildfires, and to provide guidance on changes you can make to your home and its surroundings to make it better able to survive a wildfire, and to also help you understand why these changes are important.
