Wildfire Mitigation Advisors provides consultation on how to improve the survivability of your home, property, or business in the event of a wildfire. Our onsite report analysis, including relevant photographs, provides detailed advice on home hardening and defensible space, based on industry standards. We not only make sure to acknowledge and encourage existing strengths, but also address recommendations that need attention. We tailer our consultation to your individual property and personal experience, whether it’s working with a homeowner who is new to wildfire issues, or evaluating a seasoned fire fighter’s property. The founder, Stuart Mitchell, has personally conducted nearly 400 individual property assessments.

We realize that some improvements are costly, so we emphasize free or low cost measures as well. We do not “sell” anything, but provide education, navigation, analysis, and referrals if requested. Importantly, we can also provide consultation on evacuation and preparedness planning. We are Certified in Wildfire Mitigation, by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and our focus is on Sonoma County and surrounding counties. Pricing for assessment reports range from $275-$1000, depending on the size and complexity of the property. A small price to pay to pay when it comes to your most valuable asset. We can provide education and guidance to home owners, wineries, realtors, insurance companies, and more.

Our mission is to not merely hand you a detailed report, but also to create a hands-on educational experience so an owner becomes more informed and confident about the various factors that can improve the survivability of the property. The physical modifications we recommend provide a tangible benefit to the value of your property. When it comes time to sell, the value of the property will be increased because you had a Certified Wildfire Mitigation Specialist conduct an analysis and the defensible space/structural hardening improvements made will allow the buyer to have increased confidence in the purchase, thereby adding value. We view this service as an instrumental way to build on a community’s resiliency, safety, and increases collaboration with neighbors, First Responders, and local and State officials.
