The Big Sky Natural Resource Council put together a list of 10 steps for property owners in Montana to help reduce wildland fire risk on their land.

“There is no better time than now to ensure your home is protected from wildland fires,” says Crystal Hagerman, natural resource agent from the BSNRC.

Landowners should take the following preparatory actions before a wildland fire occurs to improve the survivability of human lives and homes, Hagerman said.

These tasks primarily focus on the home and 30 feet around it in the area known at the “home ignition zone.”

□ Mow and water grass around home
□ Thin trees and brush
□ Trim tree branches overhanging roof
□ Ensure home is clearly marked
□ Remove dead and overgrown vegetation
□ Plant fire-resistant plants
□ Clean under deck and around home
□ Screen vents
□ Clear gutters, eves, and roof of debris
□ Move firewood away from house
