Redding Fire Department Urges Homeowners To Harden Homes Against Fire

This Saturday Redding Fire Department encourages everyone to recognize National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day by raising awareness and hardening our homes to the danger of fire. Redding Fire Marshall Craig Wittner urges homeowners to eliminate vulnerabilities in their home ignition zone”, which is the five foot wide perimeter around a structure. Wood chips should be replaced with gravel and wood fences replaced with other materials. The fire department is always happy to answer questions and provide advice at 225-4141 or reddingfire.org.
