Wildfire Defensible Space Inspections
Beginning in early spring, our wildfire defensible space (LE-100) inspectors will begin conducting defensible space inspections on properties located within the SRA. Residents whose properties will be receiving these inspections will receive a letter in the mail notifying them of an upcoming inspection. A copy of that letter can be viewed here. In order to prepare your property for your LE-100 inspection and the upcoming wildfire season, check out these vegetation management and defensible space tips. Thank you in advance for your participation in this important fire safety program. Please contact our Fire Prevention Department at (831) 479-6843 if you have any questions regarding our LE-100 inspection program.
