Feb 2024 – Free Wildfire Preparedness Home Assessments available through SD County Fire Safe Council


In University City, free wildfire preparedness home assessments will be scheduled from Monday, February 5 through Friday, February 16.*

From the SD County Fire Safe Council: The Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego County has been awarded a CAL FIRE Defensible Space Assistance Grant through California Fire Safe Council that will allow them to bring a new pilot Home Assessment Program to residents of San Diego County in partnership with the Fire Safe Council of San Diego County and the 39 community Fire Safe Councils including the University City Fire Safe Council.

Through this program, participants can receive a free wildfire prevention home assessment that will include a review of the vulnerability of the home and landscape to wildfire and ember ignition. Defensible Space Inspectors will provide participants with information about defensible space zones, home hardening principles, and landscaping suggestions to assist homeowners in understanding how to meet wildfire resilience goals.

Additionally, residents will receive resources and referrals to assistance programs which can further aid in achieving defensible space compliance and wildfire resilience. Programs and resources are available to support residents who need assistance creating defensible space or disposing of materials generated when they performed defensible space landscaping activities.

*Pre-registration is required and time is limited. In University City, free wildfire preparedness home assessments will be scheduled from Monday, February 5 through Friday, February 16. Residents may contact the SD County Fire Safe Council at firesafe@rcdsandiego.org for more information, questions, or application assistance. To register, visit the SD County Fire Safe Council at: SDC FSC Home Assessment Program.
