    Design guidelines and defensible space

    I am looking for examples of design guidelines that incorporate defensible space/wildfire hazard mitigation techniques. Any info or direction would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Have a look at the Larimer County Planning Department's Wildfire Home Page, at http://www.co.larimer.co.us/depts/pl...ire/index.htm.

    There are a lot of good sources, but the first place to check is with the National Fire Protection Association, which publishes standards on wildfire defense. Your local fire department should have a set of NFPA standards. I believe the Colorado State Forest Service also publishes a set of standards.
