What is IFZ and why is it important to me?

IFZ stands for "Ignition Free Zone."  The ignition free zone is the five foot perimeter around the foundation of your home.  It's the area where you want nothing - no wood pile, no door mat, no plants, no mulch, no fencing - that is combustible.  It's your most important defense area that will either help or hinder a fire when it blows embers towards your property.  

Be smart and safe - clean up your property and pay attention to the IFZ!
