Zone 1 practices

Post by mydefens »

Zone 1 is the region around your home that is 5 feet or less. This is the most important area to keep up. Keeping flammable materials to an absolute minimum in this region will do a lot to prevent fire from spreading to your home. There are also upgrades you can do to your home to minimize it's flammability. Hardie-plank siding is made from concrete and will not burn. It will reduce the danger of fire to your home significantly, as well as add to the appearance and durability.
