Prepare Defensible Space for Wildfire Protection

The city of Lakeport is asking residents to prepare for wildfire season by clearing defensible space around homes and properties. It’s the buffer that homeowners are required to create on their property between a structure and the plants, brush and trees or other items surrounding the structure that could catch fire. This space is needed to slow the spread of wildfire and improves the safety of firefighters defending your home.
