Cut Firebreaks - LVHA Recommended Defensible Space

posted Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Remove grass, small brush and dead wood within 150’ from your residence structure.

Remove these materials beneath and to at least 15’ outside the drip line of any trees within 150’ of your residence structure.

Prune larger brush and shrubs to eliminate a fire ladder to overhanging trees.

Remove grass cuttings – leaving it in place does not remove the fire hazard.

Keep concrete drains clear of debris.
