Most areas of the County of Tuolumne share large rural settings of native plant species that surround properties and homes. Defensible space is the required clearance area around a structure where combustible vegetation has been removed to minimize the risk of structural fires.
The Firewise Program is offered through the National Fire Protection Association. This program empowers communities with tools and resources to reduce their wildfire risk and encourages neighbors to take action against loss caused by wildfire.
