State law requires that all local jurisdictions identify very high fire hazard severity zones within their areas of responsibility. Inclusion within these zones is based on vegetation density, slope severity and other relevant factors that contribute to fire severity.
Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone Map
The purpose of this map is to classify lands in accordance with whether a very high fire hazard is present so that public officials are able to identify measures that will retard the rate of fire spread and reduce the intensity of uncontrolled fire through vegetation management and implementation of building standards developed to minimize loss of life, resources and property.
