The location of Rancho del Prado requires a defense against wildfire. This is important not only to the future residents of Rancho del Prado but also all of the Reche Canyon area. Rancho del Prado will include:

  • A new water reservoir
  • Firefighting infrastructure, including a dip station and helipad for firefighting uses
  • Potential locations for fire command posts and staging areas
  • A substantial defensive fire buffer for the Prado Lane and Crystal Ridge communities created by Rancho del Prado’s focus on fuel modification zones (including fire-resistant landscaping) and other specific standards for increased protection
