Defensible Space Inspections:
The City of Santa Barbara Fire Department offers voluntary inspections of your property to ensure that your home is protected. During a major wildland fire the majority of homes lost are not engulfed by the fire front. They are lost when fire embers find a weakness in your home and start a small fire that can lead to total loss.
Santa Barbara is known for its extreme fire weather and has a long history of extreme loss during the Sycamore, Paint and Tea and, most recently, the Jesusita fires. In a wind driven fire there is no guarantee that your home will survive, but we can strive to make each and every home as safe as possible.
Each and every one of the homeowners that asked for an inspection walked away after the inspection with a safer home and more knowledge than before. We again are offering this valuable service to the community.
If you have any questions about how to make your home compliant with the City’s defensible space requirements please contact us. 965-5254
