Ventura County Fire Reminder - Brush Clearing Due by June 1

Keep Your Home Safe!                                                                                                                                                              

Ventura County Fire requires homeowners and property managers to clear brush away from nearby buildings and maintain 100 feet of defensible space.  This clearing must be accomplished by June 1, 2019 to reduce fire danger. 

Fire Encroaching on NeighborhoodFire Hazard Reduction Program (FHRP) brochures will be sent out advising people to remove dry brush near open land where wildfires may occur.  The mailing will include a Ready, Set, Go! safety checklist, defensible space zone map, and a wildfire property assessment brochure to help you understand how to better prepare your home and property before a wildfire occurs.

Clearing brush helps control the amount and location of flammable vegetation. It not only helps protect Ventura County, but also provides a buffer zone for firefighters to operate should a wildfire threaten a home or property.
