Ember Education


Active wildfires move swiftly, and the most dangerous part is actually the smallest. Large flames roaring through a neighborhood seem like the most deadly. They are definitely the most dramatic. But the more threatening part of the fire is silent and often about the size of a dime. The most common culprits of home fires are what come before the flames- the embers. 


Protecting your home starts with defense.

When you hire ember defense, we make sure your home is ready to protect itself from fast-moving flames and the fire's deadly rainstorm of embers

Embers can travel over two miles ahead of the actual fire which means your home can ignite even when flames aren’t present. They can be as small as a pinhead or as large as a flying piece of plyboard. No matter the size, a single ember can burn your house down. Ember showers can rain on homes for minutes or even hours, piling up around the property and blowing into vents. They can settle under eaves, under decks, in your gutters, and get stuck in roof corners, igniting your home from the inside out.
