Through the efforts of the membership, PPMC is making changes to generate awareness and educate our community about how we can make a positive impact on the environment, alleviate local soil aridification, and implement proactive forestry to create a safer neighborhood that is more prepared for wildfire.

Defensible Space:

  • Use hardscape like gravel, pavers, concrete and other noncombustible mulch materials. No combustible bark or mulch
  • Remove all dead and dying weeds, grass, plants, shrubs, trees, branches and vegetative debris (leaves, needles, cones, bark, etc.); Check your roofs, gutters, decks, porches, stairways, etc at least once a year
  • Remove all branches within 10 feet of any chimney or stovepipe outlet
  • Limit plants in this area to low growing, nonwoody, properly watered and maintained plants
  • Limit combustible items (outdoor furniture, planters, etc.) on top of decks
    • Replace combustible fencing, gates, and arbors attach to the home with noncombustible alternatives

    A defensible space perimeter around structures should reduce the likelihood that a structure will ignite and provide a safer environment for firefighters to fight encroaching wildfires. A defensible space also minimizes the likelihood that a structure fire will escape to the surrounding wildland. An annual assessment of the area around structures should be a top priority for each PPMC homeowner.
