"Chaparral" is the predominant native plant community in the canyons of Southern California. When adjacent to homes, brush management is required to protect the homes from wildfire. In February 2008, the Fire-Rescue Department expanded the Proactive Brush Management Program City wide. Door to door brush inspections are conducted of properties on canyon rim that have been identified in Proactive Brush Management program. Inspections of properties that are not within the program are performed on a complaint basis only.
See the boundary map below where door to door inspections are currently being conducted.
Review the following information on canyon fire safety, then, if merited, contact the Fire Hazard Advisor to make a brush management complaint at 619-533-4444.
