Meri L. McEneny


After two decades of creating defensible space on her own property, Meri

became involved in the business of defensible space after a disastrous wildfire in 

Carson City, Nevada.  In July 2004, the Waterfall Fire burned for six days consuming close to 9,000 acres.  Meri worked to provide site assessments on plant and other

natural resources, educated the public about reducing the wildfire threat, and, with the fire department and the Nevada Fire Safe Council, worked to find defensible space

solutions for the community.  In 2007, Meri started Defensible Space Solutions.
