Inspectors will confirm that you have completed vegetation maintenance required by law. They will also provide recommendations for steps that may provide additional protection from wildfires. Property owners are required to maintain their properties' vegetation at all times during fire-season, and should not wait for an inspection to begin work.

You can access prior defensible space reports by visiting http://dspace.marinwildfire.org and entering your address.  If you do not have your property’s unique code, follow the prompts to request one.

Online reports are only available to property owners, renters, and authorized representatives.

Evaluations are funded through Marin Tax Measure C (2020), Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority, and the Ross Valley Fire Department.

Please contact dspace@marinwildfire.org or (415) 275-1185 with questions or for assistance accessing an online report.
