Spring Pruning Essential to Reduce Fire Risk

To say it has been a wet winter here in El Cerrito is an understatement compared to recent years. With all of the rain this season the vegetation is already growing at a significant pace.

To protect your home and community from the threat of wildfire, residents are encouraged to take a proactive approach in maintaining their property and clearing overgrown vegetation. This goes a long way in keeping the community safe. Compliance within the Vegetation Management Standards is an absolute must.

Read more about the El Cerrito Vegetation Standards.

The El Cerrito Fire Dept begins its annual weed abatement inspections starting in May. It is the goal of the Fire Dept to inspect every property in the community and assist residents in making their properties fire safe. For further assistance you can contact Captain Joe Gagne at 215-4457.

Let’s have a safe fire season in El Cerrito.
