Year after year, California witnesses extremely devastating wild
fires throughout the state. Fire agencies, both local and
state, deploy resources to these fires in an attempt to minimize
the destruction and contain them to the area of origin.
Grass Valley Fire Department, in cooperation with other local
fire agencies, put together Emergency Preparedness plans and
Evacuation guides for our community members to help ensure their
safety and readiness.
As of May 1, 2022, all weeds, flammable vegetation (e.g., dead
pine needles or leaves, dry grasses, etc.) and other combustible
materials that constitute a fire hazard need to be removed from
any private land within the City. Flammable vegetation management
must be maintained through October 31st, or the end of fire
season as declared by the California Department of Forestry and
Fire Protection (CAL FIRE), whichever comes first.
