Your Wildfire Defensible Space

Your Wildfire Defensible Space

The Boulder County Land Use Department is providing an aerial photo of wildfire defensible space zones for mountain residents. This photo is offered as an educational tool to help residents prepare for future wildfires.

To view your Wildfire Defensible Space photo, enter your property address in the Address search box below and click Submit. On the photo you will see concentric circles that show the rough boundary of your defensible zones 1 and 2. Zone 1 highlighted in red extends 30 feet from your building footprint. Zone 2 highlighted in yellow extends 100 feet from your building footprint. This drawing is for informational purposes only. If you live on a slope you will need to extend each zone on the downhill side of your home.
