Home Wildfire Consultations

The Home Wildfire Consultation is a free, voluntary evaluation of the exterior of your home and landscape for conditions that could make your home vulnerable to wildfire.  A trained volunteer from the Lakeway Firewise Committee will evaluate your property for fuels that could allow a yard fire or falling embers from a nearby wildfire to ignite your home.

During your Home Wildfire Consultation, you will be walking through with the trained consultant, learning how to recognize risks as you go.  Prior to your consultation, it would be helpful to familiarize yourself with the data collection form and a couple of useful checklists.
To request your free consultation, fill out the form below and mail or scan and email it to [email protected]. (For security reasons, you must enable JavaScript to view this E-mail address.)  A volunteer will call you to schedule a time to meet.
