It is not a matter of “if” another wildfire will occur in our area, but “when.” If your
property is located within the City of Santa Barbara high fire hazard area you are
at risk of damage from a wildland fire (See enclosed map).
Preparation for the next wildfire requires you and your family to take personal responsibility. Personal responsibility means taking steps to ensure you have a Disaster Plan in place and practice it regularly, your home and property comply with Defensible Space Requirements, and you are educated about wildfire in your community.
The information under the Wildland Fire section can help you to prepare for the next wildfire and minimize the impact of wildfire to you, your family, and our community.
