Please complete and share wildfire defensible-space survey
The California Board of Forestry and Fire Protection has created a public survey to help develop a baseline estimate of work needed to implement Zone 0 – clearing the first five feet surrounding any structure of combustibles such as woody plants, mulch and wood fences. This will inform their economic impact analysis for the regulations, which are intended to protect homes, businesses and communities.
The board has asked UC ANR staff and academics to distribute the survey through their networks to maximize responses.
The following is suggested text for social media and email sharing:
“Your input is needed! UC Cooperative Extension is partnering with the California Board of Forestry and Fire Protection to develop a new defensible space zone for wildfire resilience within the first 5 feet of a structure, known as Zone 0. We're asking California residents and business owners to help inform cost estimates for the implementation of these new science-driven defensible space standards. Please complete the 5-10 minute survey at https://forms.office.com/g/peGA5QuDfn. It's open through April 5.”
