When will I get a bill?

We expect that you will receive the bill 2-3 weeks after your inspection has occurred. Fire inspections are billable at $38.97 for the frist required annual inspection, including associated fees. Non-compliant property owners are subject to additional inspections and can be cited for subsequent fees. Fire Recovery USA, a third party service, is responsible for administering all defensible space billing on behalf of the Ventura Fire Department.
