Website for all LAFD Brush Clearance Information

Some areas are in a Very High Severity Fire Zone. (Download the fire zone map here.) If you are in this area, you are required to keep your property clear of brush and obey the LAFD brush clearance rules (download the Brush Clearance PDF below).

Download this informative PDF that is also posted on the LAFD website on "Safety Tips for Living in a Brush Area." It tells you what as a homeowner is required of you in keeping your property clear, the distances from flammable vegetation to your home and more valuable information.

If one of your neighbors is not clearing brush from their property, it endangers the entire neighborhood. Report a problem brush clearnance area to the LAFD. You may call 818-374-1111 or email LAFDBrush@lacity.org. Make sure you have the address of the problem area.

Some of us are unable to deal with the steep slopes and large trees on our property and therefore must hire these services. Here are just a few that are available as posted on the LAFD website (though none are endorsed by them,) but you can also check the yellow pages.

Home Fire Safety

Most importantly you should have 3 things in your home for fire safety,

  1. Fire extinguishers (the A-B-C extinguisher for homes) on at least every level

  2. Smoke detectors on every level as well as carbon monoxide detectors (it is the law!)

  3. Escape plan (see E.D.I.T.H. below) that you practice twice a year.
