Defensible space is your property’s frontline defense against a wildfire. Creating and maintaining defensible space around your home can dramatically increase your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire and improves the safety of firefighters defending your property.
Wildfire Fuel Mapper
The Napa County Wildfire Fuel Mapper was created to help residents, fire safe councils, and other land managers to help to locate and understand fire hazards on their property. The application aggregates fine-scale fuels and fire hazard datasets to deliver information via custom maps and reports. The simple interface helps community members to understand planning and regulatory requirements specific to their location. Formerly available only to Sonoma County residents, the Wildfire Fuel Mapper has recently been expanded to all of Napa County, with funding from Napa Firewise Foundation.
We are excited to share that Napa Firewise is offering a Cost-Share program for property owners that are in or within a mile of a High or Very High Severity Zone. The program is meant to assist owners in achieving compliance of Napa County Defensible Ordinance and Guidelines. Scan QR code (below) to sign up for the program!
