Defensible Space Inspections: Barber & Winship Neighborhoods and Ross Properties West of Sir Francis Drake Starting July 1st

Wildfire Risk Home Evaluation

Coming soon to your neighborhood:  Wildfire Risk Home Evaluations

Hello Neighbors,

The Marin Wildfire and your local fire department is committed to working with you to reduce the risk of wildfire through home hardening and defensible space evaluations on your property. Starting as early as July 1st, neighbors in the Barber and Winship neighborhoods of San Anselmo and Ross as well as Ross properties west of Sir Francis Drake will be evaluated for wildfire risk by your local fire department. If you are not at home, we will only inspect what we can see from the street to your front door.

Your Wildfire Risk Report will be available for review approximately 24 hours after the inspection. It provides steps to reduce wildfire risks and improve your safety. Please open your report, review the findings and access resources. Some actions may be required by law. 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.

Review your report online or request a copy to be mailed to you. Go to marinwildfiredspace.org or call (415) 275 – 1185 for help and resources. Wildfire Risk Reports are available online to property owners, renters, and authorized representatives.

This program is provided by your local fire department and Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority, funded by Tax Measure C (2020)
