Defensible Space


Maintaining a defensible space helps us keep properties and lives safe from fire.

Review the Grass Valley Vegetation Management and yard debris removal requirements for more information about how to keep your property in compliance throughout fire season. 

Per Cal Fire standards, 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 at the Cal Fire Defensible Space website.
