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.
Maintaining a defensible space
helps us keep properties and lives safe from fire. Not only
is it the law, but maintaining 100 feet of defensible space
around your home can be the difference between it being savable
or not. In addition to keeping your home defensible, keep
driveways and roadways into your property adequately cleared so
we can fit fire engines and other equipment down them. Learn more
