Protecting homes and other structures from wildland fire
During Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) fire threats Firestorm’s Structure Protection crews work to protect homes, businesses, farms, and other structures from fire. These specialized crews are trained and certified to the National Fire Protection Association 1001 (NFPA) standards or S115 (Urban Interface) as well as Wildfire certified.
Our Structure Protection Specialists develop Structure Protection plans that provide operational guidelines to crews. At Firestorm our specialists are responsible for developing an incident's structure protection plan and providing tactical direction and recommendations to our structure protection crews.

It also helps to control and minimize wildfire damage. Firestorm’s trained and certified team members provide a variety of prescribed fire services.
