The Beverly Hills Fire Department on April 1 will begin its annual inspections on residential properties located in the “very high fire hazard” zone north of Sunset Boulevard.
“It is important that our community along with our Beverly Hills Fire Department work together to ensure our city is prepared well ahead of time,” Mayor Lili Bosse said. “Our incredible firefighters are always monitoring conditions 24 hours a day and it’s imperative our community follows their recommendations.”
The 2023 Vegetation Management Program Brochure with brush clearance requirements has been disseminated to all residences in the city. Abatement of hazardous, dry and dead vegetation is the responsibility of property owners and shall be maintained year-round.
“We appreciate the cooperation of our community as we work to reduce the risk that dry and hazardous vegetation presents,” BHFD Chief Greg Barton said. “During a fire, these dangerous conditions act as fuel for fire and by removing these hazards, we are all working together to protect life and property.”
For information or to schedule a pre-inspection, contact a Fire Prevention Inspector at (310)281-2703 or visit beverlyhills.org/ fdbrush.
