Wildfire building codes are now universal

Requirements that once only applied to parcels in the WUI would be applicable to all parcels within the City of San Rafael. For example, if you are replacing the windows throughout your home, they will need to meet the fire resistant building material requirements as outlined in California Fire Code Section 7A. 

Why? Wildfire knows no boundaries. Many of the large wildfires in the past few years spread by embers, not flame fronts or radiant heat. This means homes outside the WUI also need to have defensible space to help reduce fire spread and structure loss.  

To find out if your home is in a WUI area, you can search your property by Tax Parcel Number or Street Address.
