  • Assemblies

  • Restaurants
  • Schools
  • Senior Citizen housing
  • Other buildings that could pose significant risks to its occupants or the public. 

Defensible Space Inspections 


Although single family residences are generally only inspected upon request, those residences in designated High Fire Hazard areas within the District’s jurisdiction are inspected each spring for compliance with rural fire safety standards.
