How to reduce the vulnerability of windows

  • When replacing windows, choose multi-pane options containing tempered glass.
  • If neighbors or outbuildings are within 30-feet of the home, consider installing deployable noncombustible shutters to provide additional protection.
  • Install screens in all operable windows. Screens increase ember resistance by keeping embers out of the home and also decrease radiant heat exposure.
  • Close windows when wildfire is threatening.
