There will be no 100% security against the right conditions. Fierce winds do spread the fire, but the rooftop sprinklers can be one point of prevention. Also having a defensible space with trees 20' away from the home is one recommendation. But when you live in the forest like I do, cutting so many trees down just sucks. A non-combustible shingle is another. But we read that embers were flying into some of the attic and soffit vents catching the homes on fire. Every piece of prevention is just that - one piece. Do 2, 3, 4 pieces and you have a pretty good system of prevention.
