Wildfire Preparedness in San Ysidro?

Smoke from a California Wildfire is shown. We respond to storm and wildfire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in San Diego County.

Wildfire Season is Here in San Ysidro

At SERVPRO® of Otay Mesa/San Ysidro, we respond to wildfire and other storm damage emergencies throughout the year. We are experiencing a drought in the western region of the country, and that means we need to do everything we can to minimize the potential for wildfires. Here are some tips from the County of San Diego for creating a defensible space around your home:

The defensible space around your home should be a 100-foot radius from any structure. You are not required to cross your property line to clear the 100 feet.  The neighboring property owner may be required to clear the additional distance by the fire agency.

The National Fire Protection Association suggests choosing fire-resistant building materials and to limit the amount of flammable vegetation in three home ignition zones.

  • Trim branches that overhang the home, porch, and deck
  • Prune branches of large trees up to 6 to 10 feet from the ground
  • Remove plants containing resins, oils, and waxes
  • Use crushed stone or gravel instead of flammable mulches o to 5 feet around the house
  • Keep your landscape in good condition
