Defensible Space Solutions

Prevent losses, lower risk

CalFIRE defines Defensible Space as “the buffer you create between a building on your property and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surround it.” Maintaining Defensible Space is crucial to protecting a building from wildfire damage, as well as damage from other catastrophic events.

Defensible Space Map

The Defensible Space Map on the Betterview Platform shows underwriters the exact amount of Defensible Space in three different zones on the property. The map spotlights tree cover, yard debris, secondary structures, and any other factors which take away from total Defensible Space.

Wildfire Vulnerability Score

Betterview’s Wildfire Vulnerability Score rates each building on a property on a scale of 1-100, based on its amount of Defensible Space. These scores help determine a property’s overall risk of damage. They can be integrated into our customizable Flagging System to empower direct underwriter action.
