Canyon Fire Safety – Brush Management and Weed Abatement


The San Diego Fire Rescue Department reminds all residents that San Diego’s fire season is year-round. Even with recent rains, we are experiencing one of the driest periods in state history. It’s important that every resident prepare their home, their family, and the area surrounding their home for the possibility of a major fire.

“Brush” is the predominant native plant community in the canyons of Southern California. When adjacent to homes, brush management is required to protect the homes from wildfire. The goal of brush management is to reduce the chance of fire and to keep small fires small. For more information about the City’s Brush Management and Weed Abatement program, visit
