Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the LAFD has issued new brush clearance timelines for property owners located within the Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone (VHFHSZ). The annual Brush Clearance Season has been pushed back from April 30, 2020, to June 1, 2020.
Though the inspection deadline has been moved back to June 1, keep in mind that brush clearance is a year-round responsibility. Clear early and clear often. Our district has seen frequent and significant wildfires in the past couple of years, including the La Tuna, Creek, and Saddleridge fires. The safety of your home during wildfire season can be significantly increased with proper brush clearance, advanced planning, and preparation.
