Protect Your Home From Wildfire

August 21, 2015

2015 was one of the most active wildfire seasons in recent years. Hot, dry weather has fueled fires across much of the West, forcing evacuations, leaving thousands without power and enveloping communities in thick smoke.

The best way to protect your property from wildfire is with proper defensible space. For added protection, consider an at-home fire retardant delivery system, such as Phos-Chek Home Defense. Home Defense, which includes an uncolored version of the same fire retardant used by the USDA Forest Service, can be sprayed using most simple garden sprayers. The product is available as a concentrate or ready to use mixture. Homeowners can purchase a home kit that includes both retardant and sprayer. Used along with Firewise principles, Phos-Chek Home Defense can significantly increase your home’s safety during a wildfire.
