Join us to learn several simple actions you can take to prepare your family and western Washington home for the upcoming fire season.

The increase in wildfires across the Pacific Northwest has heightened awareness that King County communities need to be better prepared for wildfire. Climate change makes this need even more urgent. When it comes to the risk of home ignition posed by a wildfire, changing the physical conditions of a home and its immediate surroundings best mitigate this risk. With preparation and action, your home can survive a wildfire!

Join King Conservation District (KCD) as we conduct a wildfire home risk assessment tour using the concept of Home Ignition Zones. This tour will provide residents with a better understanding of their home’s vulnerabilities to ignition during a wildfire and provide recommendations of best management practices to address vulnerabilities and reduce infrastructure damage.

Topics covered include:

  • Wildfire preparedness best practices
  • Wildfire Home Risk Assessment using Home Ignition Zones
  • Mitigating wildfire ignition risk to a home
  • Funding and technical assistance opportunities and resources

King Conservation District (KCD) provides home wildfire risk assessments to properties in moderate to high wildfire risk communities located in wildland urban interface areas of King County.
