Wildfire Hazard Assessment
Schedule your assessment right away. Dates and time filling up fast ! The cost is $3422.67. This cost can be 100% financed.
This is the first thing you want to do. This lets you know What, When, How and When... The first step is to identify the problem. A wildfire assessment will accomplish that.
A Comprehensive Home and Property Assessment. This assessment will gather information from Surveying your Home and Property utilizing local city, county, state wildfire safe standards as well as common fire fighting tactics and strategy employed to protect your home from wildfire. A wildfire behavior analysis will be conducted to determine the impact of wildfire on your home.
This assessment will be used to determine your homes ability to survive in the event of a wildfire and develop solutions to fully protect your home and make it a safe haven for your family and neighbors.
The field survey portion of the assessment make take 2-12 hours depending on the complexity of the site conditions both topographic and architecture.
To compile the field data, run a fire behavior analysis/risk assessment, develop an overview of findings and recommended fire protection strategies. This compilation of data into a comprehensive report will take 30 to 45 days to complete.
Your Protection can be assured if you develop a Fire Protection Plan and implement it.
Please schedule your Wildfire Hazard Assessment as soon as you can... Our 2020 calendar is filling up. The assessment costs $3422.67 to gather the information needed to develop Fire Protection Strategies based off this information. Call-Email... Get on the calendar!
Fire Protection Plans and Engineering
Vegetation Management Plans/Fire Protection Systems and Equipment Plans/Fire Resistive Building Construction Plans.
These plans will be developed from the data gathered in your "Wildfire Hazard Assessment" These plans are Designed/Engineered by Landscape- Firescaping Architects, Wildfire Risk Assessors, Fire Protection Engineers & Technicians as well as Building Architects. All these folks specialize in protecting Homes and Business from wildfire.
Please keep in mind that these specialized plans would be developed to implement the recommendations of the Wildfire Assessment. Each specialized plan is part of an overall Wildfire Protection Strategy and should be implemented as such.
That being said you may implement theses plans concurrently or in succession as to greatest risks mitigated first.
(A) Vegetation Management Plan (VMP) for your property to include emergency egress pathways (Brush Clearing/Hazard Reduction). Barrier Fire Protection Systems, irrigation/well systems as well as natural water reclamation and storage strategies to protect zones 2 and 3. This plan takes about 21 days to complete. The cost of these plans start at $3245.99 depending on the complexity of the site.
(B) Fire Protection Systems and Equipment plans for Interior,Exterior and Barrier Fire Protection Systems to include Early Warning and Event Notification.

Defensible Space Installation
Firescaping for the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI)
Defensible space is known as well as” Firescaping”. Defensible Space Statigies are used in all zones to one degree or another.
When we are thinking defensible space, there are 2 general types of landscaping we come across: Native or Ornamental.
A Native landscape would be natural plant communities relatively untouched from the house to the forest. Little to no irrigation in these zones, 2 and 3. A much hotter and drier environment susceptible to flame propogation and spread.
An Ornamental landscape would be an improved landscaped environment. Maintenanced and irrigated plant communities would extend from 30 to 50 feet from the house, including zones 1 and 2. Higher humidity’s with some fire restive species are critical here.
These landscapes may contain hardscapes that further influence the spread of wildfire.
Both these landscapes offer numerous control options. These options start from different places but are of the same concept… ”Defensible Space”
Defensible Space is an area either natural or man made where materials capable of allowing fire to spread unchecked has been treated, cleared or modified to slow the rate and intensity of a wildfire.
Proven and accepted standards of Design, Installation and Maintenance, approved by Fire Departments Nation Wide for over 100 years!
Building Construction for the Wildland Urban Interface
Fire Restive strategies to protect your home from wildfire. California/Oregon Residential Building Code to include Chapter 7a CRBC as adopted from the International Residential Building Code.
All new construction and remodels will conform to the local codes and ordinances that apply; Electrical,Plumbing, Mechanical, Energy and Green Building, Pool and Spa Safety as well as applicable Historical Building Applications.
The cost to build a fully Fire Resistive, Modern Custom Home will range from $200 to $550 per square foot based on location and your choices in design, interior and exterior finishes. Some folks may also need to buy land to build the house on.
A Custom Fire Resistive Home Design will add 10% to 17% more to your budget, average $30,000 to $50,000. To get accurate cost projections for the project, we need turn those ideas into blueprints and to work with structural engineers, permitting agencies and to identify individual trade element costs.
Remodels/retrofits costs per square foot on an average are in the medium to high range for New Construction square foot costs.
Automatic - Interior Residential Fire Sprinkler Systems
These Fire Sprinkler Systems will conform to the Design, Installation, Inspection and Maintenance standards adopted by the local authorities having jurisdiction as well as NFPA 13D, Standard for the Installation of Automatic Fire Sprinkler Systems in One- and Two-Family Dwellings and Manufactured Homes as well as NFPA 13R a residential sprinkler design standard focused on low-rise residential occupancies.
The costs of these Fire Sprinkler System Range from $2.00-$2.50 a square foot depending on location and fire water supply. This includes labor and materials for the pipe distribution systems main, branch and lateral supply line to the fire sprinklers.
The Engineering and Plans for these types of Fire Sprinkler Systems start at $2675.22 depending on the architectural complexity as well as available fire water supply.
All NFPA 13D,13R are to be a full permit project... Meaning the plans will be submitted to the authorities having jurisdiction for review and acceptance where a permit for installation shall be issued. State, County and City fees Start at $1849.54.
The cost of the Fire Water Supply will be determined by existing site conditions; (a) can we use existing conditions (b) or do we have to augment existing conditions to meet our fire protection needs. To figure out this cost we must first design a fire sprinkler system to determine the fire water needs, ie, gpm`s, pressure, pipe diameters...
A deferred cost if existing conditions are not favorable.
