Fuel Modification Zones

Cardinal Property Management - Thursday, June 13, 2013
By Park West Landscape Management Deadline for the completion of your fuel modification zones will be here soon. If your community has a fuel mod zone then you know the importance of getting it up to code annually by the required date. It is also very important to follow the written plan if one is in place. If you don’t have a fuel mod plan then you should meet with your local Fire Authority and get a clear understanding of the requirements. Not all fuel mod zones are alike thus the maintenance requirements differ from one to another. Don’t assume that the level of clearing and removal is the same even if it is in the same county. Once your annual fuel mod maintenance has been completed it is recommended that you have it inspected by the Fire Authority. By following these basic steps you will lessen the degree of liability for your community by providing a buffer zone between a potentially dangerous fire and your homes or businesses.
