Remember that Marin is under a Red Flag Warning from the National Weather Service until 11PM tonight!
At FIRESafe MARIN, we are very happy to see many Marin neighborhoods becoming engaged about wildfire safety. During a recent online discussion, one clever neighbor suggested installing "rain-bird" type sprinklers on a roof as a way to prevent embers from igniting a home. Discussions and suggestions to improve fire safety among neighbors are extremely valuable, and will benefit us all in the long-run. That said, this particular suggestion (turning on rain-bird sprinklers when a wildfire is burning nearby) is not advised, for a number of reasons.
