Get prepared NOW for wildfire!

DNR is the state of Washington’s largest on-call fire department. With fire season quickly approaching, there is no better time to take action and implement “firewise” strategies around your home. For the past few weeks, we’ve been posting video blogs in which Cisco Morris, book author and popular television and radio gardening show host, shares tips with homeowners and community members on fire prevention. In case you missed our Cisco Morris video series on fire prevention, here’s a recap:

Fire Resistant Homes

Don’t let your home become a fire hazard. There are many ways to protect your home from the risk of wildfire. Check out these construction and landscape techniques to make your house more fire-resistant.

Fighting Fire with Flowers

You can reduce the risk of wildfire by choosing fire resistant plants and knowing where to place them in your garden. The good news is that you’re not limited to just a few plants. There is a plethora of fire resistant plants available.

Communities Taking Action

More people than ever live in the wildland-urban interface, the transition zone between developed areas and wildlands–a zone where destructive wildfires can and do occur. Cisco Morris shows you how to make your community more resistant to wildfire.

Stay safe this summer. You can’t stop a fire from emerging naturally, but you can take precautions to protect your home, land, and loved ones from the risks of wildfire.
