Wildfire Adapted Sonoma County helps residents within the project areas understand how to create defensible space and harden homes against wildfire. Each parcel in the project areas will receive a vegetation management assessment and can opt-in to receive a structure hardening assessment. After inspection, property owners will be able to apply for a cost-share program to help implement measures recommended by the assessors.
