What is Defensible Space?
"Defensible space is the buffer you create between your home or business and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area surrounding it. Proper defensible space can slow or stop the spread of wildfire and help protect your home or business. Well-maintained defensible space can increase your homes chance of survival by 75%."Oregon State Fire Marshal
