CalFire inspectors have begun conducting defensible space inspections throughout the 31 million acres of state responsibility area (SRA) in California.
“Creating and maintaining defensible space is critical for the protection of homes,” said Chief Ken Pimlott, CalFire director. “It has never been more critical to strengthen our fire prevention efforts in light of the elevated fire conditions we have been experiencing in California. We have increased our inspection staffing and now we need the public to make sure they, too, are prepared for the increased fire risk due to drought.”
