Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project consists of fire-safe vegetation management, hazardous fuels reduction, and removal of dead or dying vegetation within a homeowner’s property line and fuel clearances up to 30 - 100 feet from structures depending on Fire Hazard Severity Zone (FHSZ). The purposes of this project are to make fire safety recommendations, provide vegetation management services, and maintain fuel clearances around residences to reduce ignitability of homes in the event of a wildfire. Conservation Concierges has received a Wildfire Prevention Grant from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) to perform hazardous fuel reductions and increase fire resiliency and preparedness for communities most vulnerable to the threat of wildfire in the region. The project area represents communities around the San Fernando Valley that have a high risk of danger from prevalent wildfire incidence in the region.
