Vegetation/fuels reduction adjacent to neighborhoods help provide a safe environment for wildland firefighters trying to protect values located on private and public lands. This cabin was "ready" before fire season with defensible space completed the year before. During wildfire incident crews are then able to "backburn" and stop wildfire from rolling off the forest land and into someone's backyard. These treatments also reduce ember wash responsible for starting small spot fires ahead of a wildfire front.

 Notice the new pile of slash in the front, there's not always time for such prep work, yesterday is a good time to start protecting your home for wildfire. Stay ready to be ready!
