Chino Valley Fire District

Vegetation Management & Wildland-urban Interface

FAITHFULNESS. INTEGRITY. RESPECT. EXCELLENCE.

Vegetation can pose a fire hazard, especially during the dry and windy seasons that we experience in Southern California. To minimize the threat of potential fire hazards due to combustible vegetation, the fire district has an ordinance that prohibits the accumulation of various combustible vegetation that can endanger lives and property.

Vegetation management is the year-round responsibility of property owners, especially for properties requiring defensible space due to their proximity to the district’s wildland-urban area (WUI). Wildland-urban interface (WUI) area refers to geographical areas where undeveloped, wildland vegetation transitions to developed land such as residential neighborhoods.

Communities adjacent to and surrounded by wildlands can be at risk of wildfires.

The Community Risk Reduction Division conducts routine inspections twice a year as part of the vegetation management program. The inspections typically occur during the spring and fall seasons. Failure to comply with a notice to destroy or order to abate issued by the fire district can have substantial impacts, such as assessment of fees, fines, and or clearance by the district’s contracted vegetation clearance contractor.

Each respective city adopts fire hazard severity maps within the fire district’s jurisdiction. To find out if you reside in a designated fire hazard area, please locate the CVFD Coverage Map in the downloadable documents area below.

If you have any questions regarding the vegetation management program or to file a complaint, please call us at 909-902-5285 or email us weeds@chofire.org
