Summary

Address:

This report groups your answers into high, moderate, and low categories. Answers that received a high rating are the most important to address immediately. Although answers falling into the low category may not require immediate attention, you should continually monitor these items because the results will differ as your home ages and your yard changes seasonally and annually.

This is only an estimate of the vulnerability of your home and its immediate surroundings to a wildfire event. Your structure could be at greater risk depending on other factors including its distance to wildland areas, the slope of your property, the amount of vegetative and other fuels within 100 feet of your home (even if those fuels are not on your property), and other factors too complex to list completely.

A brief possible solution to each issue is provided under each question. Click the + image to see more in-depth information.
