BRUSH

UPDATED INFORMATION FOR THE 2020 BRUSH SEASON

To Property Owners,

The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) Brush Clearance Unit’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. During this difficult and unprecedented time, our mission and commitment to your health and safety, and that of LAFD members, continues to be of utmost importance.

Brush Fires continue to be a threat to life and property within the Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone.

THE NEW DATE FOR THE 2020 BRUSH CLEARANCE SEASON COMMENCES JUNE 1, 2020.

We pledge to ensure that each impacted parcel owner remains well informed and updated on any necessary changes to our process. 

FOR ALL FIRE/LIFE SAFETY BRUSH NOTICE VIOLATIONS - DUE DATES WILL BE EXTENDED FROM 15 TO 45 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF THE INITIAL INSPECTION.

LAFD BRUSH INSPECTORS WILL BE PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING IN THE COURSE OF THEIR DUTIES, AND DISCONTINUING IN-PERSON MEETINGS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. WE KINDLY ASK FOR YOUR COOPERATION AND PATIENCE TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF ALL PERSONS INVOLVED.

The safety of your home can be significantly increased with proper brush clearance, advanced planning and preparation. We thank you for such efforts. 

Additional information specific to your property can be found on the LAFD Brush Clearance Inspection Portal at vms3.lafd.org.
