FIRE SAFETY DEADLINE
JUNE 1, 2021
The weather is getting warmer and fire season is upon us. The local fire districts are expecting a high fire danger season. Some districts have moved the June 1st deadline into May and are already assessing parcels and citing landowners. Please do the best you can. Do not hesitate to contact the Board of Directors with any questions or concerns.
As a reminder, the GSRLA Fire Safe Rule states:
"1. Each landowner will maintain 100 feet of defensible space around their homes.
2. Each landowner will maintain a 30 foot fire break from the road. This break will not apply to areas that contain improved and maintained landscaping. This break is for areas that are unimproved and in a wild condition.
Within this fire break:
a. All trees to be limbed up at least 8 feet above the ground. Dead limbs in trees are to be limbed up at least 15 feet. Dead trees are to be removed.
b. All grasses in the fire break area re to be cut or sprayed down to a level of 3 inches by June 1st of each year. This area is to be kept free of all wild brush, such as Manzanita, Buckeyes, etc. "
