DEFENSIBLE SPACE ADVISORY VISIT - FSCNC

FIRE SAFE COUNCIL OF NEVADA COUNTY, INC #66410709


location_on B
  • 143 B Spring Hill Drive
    Grass Valley, Nevada

The Defensible Space Advisory Visit program provides a one-on-one consultation and advice at your home for comprehensive education on compliance with Public Resource Code 4291 – the law that requires defensible space around structures. PRC 4291 was expanded in 2005 from 30 feet to 100 feet of clearance.

With increased promotion of defensible space, many people were confused and had difficulty understanding what needed to be accomplished. The council implemented a volunteer advisory program with formal training by CAL FIRE and local resources to provide an advisory visit that mirrored a compliance inspection without the threat of enforcement.

Fire Safe Council asks that people please consider making the suggested tax-deductible donation of $25 (to cover co…
