Defensible Space Inspections Begin on June 10th, 2019 in Yosemite Area

Yosemite, CA….Are you fire ready? Defensible space inspections will begin in the park on June 10th. Creating defensible space is essential to improve your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire. It is the buffer you create between a building on your property and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surround it. This space is needed to slow or stop the spread of wildfire and it protects your home from catching fire, either from direct flame contact or radiant heat. Defensible space is also important for the protection of the firefighters defending your home.
