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:
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
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 received one of these postcards, visit fireadaptedashland.org/myhome, enter your code, then view the information about your home's wildfire risk.
