Roofing & Venting w Wildfires

Yvonne Welles
Getting ready to break ground on a new home. Building in a location with wild fire potential ICF construction and fire rated doors being used. Last year two storms with winds approaching 100 mph. Primary construction concerns are wild fires and wind. Looking at Rolled Steel Products "LOC-RIB". The question is on the venting. Unable to find a fire rated ridge vent. Is a ridge vent the best application for this situation or should another type of vent be used? Although not located in California I only find a handful of vents that meet the new California code (none ridge vents).

If I were worried about fires, I would opt for an un-vented design. What is the layout of the home?
