Cleaning Gutters

Fall is here.  Follow these FireSmart™ tips during your fall clean-up to help protect your home from the risk of wildfire.

  1. Clean your roof and gutters by removing leaves, tree needles, and other debris.
  2. Remove all combustibles and plant material within a 1.5 m area around your home by sweeping or raking the area.  Remember to get under your deck too, if you have one!
  3. Remove dead plants, leaves, and fallen woody debris. Pile your firewood at least 10 m away from your house.
