Defensible Space Advisory Visit (DSAV)

Defensible Space Advisory Visit

This program provides a one-on-one consultation at your home for comprehensive education on compliance with Public Resource Code 4291 – the law that requires defensible space around structures. PRC 4291 was expanded in 2005 from 30 feet to 100 feet of clearance. We'll help you come up with an action plan, as well.

With increased promotion of defensible space, many people were confused and had difficulty understanding what needed to be accomplished. The council implemented a volunteer advisory program with formal training by CAL FIRE and local resources to provide an advisory visit that mirrored a compliance inspection without the threat of enforcement.

This has been a very powerful mechanism to gain support in communities as well as incite action as a whole with neighbors helping neighbors to improve the fire safe condition throughout the neighborhood.
