Learn about your Home's Wildfire Risk
If you live in Ashland, you live in the Wildfire Hazard Zone, the area where wildfire has been identified as a significant risk to the community.
To help you understand your wildfire risk, in 2018 Ashland Fire & Rescue conducted a curbside Wildfire Risk Assessment of every home in Ashland, and calculated your home's risk to wildfire based upon the following factors:
In July of 2020, we mailed every homeowner in Ashland a postcard with an access code to view your property's wildfire risk score, and to provide information on how to reduce your wildfire risk. If you own a home in Ashland, you should have received one of the two postcards displayed below. If you are missing your postcard, please email email@example.com and we will provide the access code for your property.
- Background Risk, influenced by the surrounding landscape outside of your control
- Fire Resistant Construction of your home
- Defensible Space provided by managing the vegetation and landscaping within 100 feet of your property
- Access for you and first responders to enter and exit your property
If you received one of these postcards, visit fireadaptedashland.org/myhome, enter your code, then view the information about your home's wildfire risk.
