The basic approach to implement HMM is to:
- Fully protect each structure from embers (Table A).
- Remove fuel where possible, reduce fuel that can not be removed, and relocate fuel away from structures and fences, etc.
- Consider the spacing between fuels on the property being mitigated (Table C) and neighboring properties (Table B).
- Consult Table D for mitigating actions if spacing is not adequate to reduce exposure.
Vulnerabilities to embers and fire must be addressed independently.
The expanded workflow cycle is illustrated in the flowchart below, highlighting independent mitigation of embers and fire exposure vulnerabilities.
