What is Greensboro’s Risk for Wildfires?
If you’ve been unfortunate enough to watch the news on the television, you’ve likely seen frightening images of wildfires spreading across the West Coast, from LA all the way up to Washington. But we’re on the Eastern Seaboard over here at SERVPRO of Burlington NC, so what’s our risk for wildfire damage? Luckily, in the Piedmont Triad, we’re fairly safe from Wildfire Damage. FEMA classifies our risk as “Fairly Low.” (Seen here: https://hazards.fema.gov/nri/wildfire) Unless you’re living in the counties near the beach, especially the Southeastern Counties, you’re likely safe.
That being said, we’re not out of the woods yet! Actually, we are. We’re inside your home, where the true danger is! Most fire damage actually comes from inside the home. You can read some tips on how to avoid said damage here: Christmastime is the time for cheer, not Housefires!
