Due to the recent fires in my area, I was reevaluating the fire safety of my home last night and realized that by simply rotating the heads on four sprinklers 180 degrees, I can water 60 feet of wooden fence and soak the area around the three evergreens.
The house is pretty safe due to masonry roofing and I don’t have many flammables next to the house that would ignite the siding.

We, too, reside in a fire area. Our best protection is probably: (1) having gotten rid of 55 big trees (mostly pine with several eucalyptus) on our back slope, plus (2) getting rid of the heavy shake roof in favor of tile. The house is predominantly stucco and stone although there are some exposed wood overhangs. That's about it.
In the past, there were some close calls, usually involving the Santa Ana winds.
