Is Your Home Safe From the Threat of Wildland Fire?

This Home Hardening video presentation will help you learn important steps you can take to better protect your family, home, and community by making your home more resistant to wildfires. 

In fall 2019, the Fire Safe Council of Santa Cruz County hosted a series of presentations on Home Hardening. We were very fortunate to have Yana Valakovich, a noted expert in this burgeoning field, present important material to residents here in Santa Cruz County who are interested in making their homes more fire safe. She graciously allowed us to record her presentation to share with others interested in this topic.
