Homeowners’ Guide to Wildfire Prevention

Dr. Sieben is the featured author at A Great Good Place for Books at 7 pm, June 18th, 6120 LaSalle Avenue, in the Montclair district of Oakland. He will present photographs demonstrating the recommendations made in his book, The Homeowners’ Guide to Wildfire Prevention.

This is your chance to ask questions of the author, who has managed wildfire prevention in Hiller Highlands, Phase V, near the epicenter of the 1991 Oakland firestorm. Emphasis will be on wildfire prevention methods within the home ignition zone owned by the property owner, beginning with ember proofing the structure itself and creating a non-ignition zone in the first 3-5 feet.

It is up to the homeowner to take responsibility for this area.
