Why do I need a Fire Hazard Reduction Inspection?

The intent of the inspections and fuel management is to reduce the risk, severity, and intensity of wildfire.

There are several codes and state statutes that require defensible space in Fire Hazard Severity Zones, including the California Fire Code, California Government Code, California Public Resource Code, and Natural Resources Code that govern defensible space and fuel management in the fire hazard severity zone areas.
