The Wildfire Protection Unit® is not a private fire department; it's a loss mitigation service designed to pre-empt damage well before a wildfire even ignites. The services includes:
Our wildfire protection specialists can visit your property to assess its vulnerability in the event of a wildfire. If warranted, they can apply Phos-Chek® — the same fire environmentally friendly fire retardant used by the U.S. Forest Service — around the perimeter of your property. The retardant creates an added layer of protection that can last throughout wildfire season.
During a wildfire.
It is our goal to dispatch wildfire mitigation specialists to the affected area. If access is permitted, wildfire mitigation specialists can visit vulnerable properties and, when necessary, apply Class A foam or Phos-Chek®.*
*The application of fire retardant is one part of an overall wildfire mitigation plan and homeowners should consult with public service organizations like the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (www.fire.ca.gov) for more tips and information on wildfire mitigation. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to access your property during a wildfire. We cannot guarantee the application of fire retardant will prevent or reduce damage of your property from a fire.
