Fire Mitigation by Wayne Arnold in La Veta and Huerfano County

Protect Your Home and Property from Wildfire

Homeowners, landowners and communities bear the ultimate responsibility to help protect themselves, their property and their local values at risk from the threat of wildland fire.

Homeowners can take steps to protect their property and help alleviate the spread of wildland fires. Many Coloradans living in the foothills in ponderosa and lodgepole forests need to consider the fire-prone nature of these ecosystems. Due to Colorado’s arid climate and fire-dependent forests, many homeowners and landowners may be particularly vulnerable to wildfires. It is important to keep this threat in mind when buying or building a home.

Fire is unpredictable. If there are weaknesses in your home’s fire protection scheme, fire can gain the upper hand because of some overlooked or seemingly inconsequential factor. By creating wildfire-defensible zones, homes are less vulnerable from this naturally occurring phenomenon and the chance of spreading wildfires is greatly reduced.

We Can Help Your Fire-Mitigation

Wayne Arnold Excavating are experts in creating defensible space in the area around your home or other structure to reduce fire hazard. In this area, natural and man-made fuels are treated, cleared or reduced to slow the spread of wildfire. Creating defensible space also works in the reverse, and reduces the chance of a structure fire spreading to neighboring homes or the surrounding forest. Defensible space gives your home a fighting chance against an approaching wildfire.

Creating an effective defensible space involves a series of management zones in which different treatment techniques are used. Develop these zones around each building on your property, including detached garages, storage buildings, barns and other structures. The actual design and development of your defensible space depends on several factors.

  • Size and shape of building(s)
  • Construction materials
  • Slope of the ground
  • Surrounding topography
  • Sizes and types of vegetation on your property

Wayne Arnold Excavating will make sure that your home and property are optimized against the threat of wildfire. We have done this many times, and it has been proven effective in all cases that we handled for the homeowners.
