BRUSH CLEARING SAFETY TIPS

Brush Clearing Postcard Front Pic

It's that time of year---brush clearing around your home!

Los Angeles is subject to hot weather, high winds, dryness and overgrowth, which create fire hazards when combined. It is important you brush clear your property and create a defensible space around your home to ward off potential fire disasters.   Firefighters credit brush clearance with preventing a major loss of homes and other damage during the wildfire. Most brush fires start on uncleared, overgrown areas with lots of fuel (such as dead branches, tree parts and dry leaves), so brush clearance is considered a crucial barrier when flames reach developed areas. Although brush clearance inspections occur one a year, remember that maintenance is a year-round responsibilty.  The LA County Fire Code requires all structure owners to comply with brush clearance requirements in an area up to 200' from structures.  To help you following safe brush clearing guidelines, please read on.
