"Devastating wildfires are increasing in size and ferocity nationwide. If you live in or near wilderness, sooner or later fire will happen. Fortunately you can prepare for it, and preparations don't have to cost a fortune. This highly detailed and practical guide will help you live safely in the wildfire zone and save you time and money along the way, providing various methods of risk mitigation along with the financial level of each action.

This book will help you create a survivable space that will not only enhance the scenery but may increase the value of your home. Be Fire Smart, and you'll greatly improve your odds of surviving a major conflagration. "--
