Compliance Guide coverThe Exterior Hazard Abatement program is designed to reduce or prevent the spread of wildfire from one property to another. Each year, the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District notifies thousands of property owners in wildland urban interface areas of the requirement for exterior hazard abatement. The term "exterior hazard abatement" is used to address any overgrowth of grasses, weeds, shrubbery or trees. Exterior hazard abatement standards have been designed to minimize fire hazards throughout the District. Through abatement efforts, all property owners and citizens can be assured of a safer fire season.

The deadline is May 31st and inspections start on June 1st every year.

All properties not in compliance will be placed on the abatement list and fees will be assessed in the form of a lien on the property.

The San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District does not make any recommendations concerning Weed Abatement Service Providers. We do, however, maintain a list of providers in our area.

Report a Fire Hazard

If you see a property that needs attention, please complete the complaint form. Complaints will be taken after the May 31st deadline and will be incorporated into the normal inspection process.
