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, Chino Valley Fire has an ordinance that prohibits the accumulation of various combustible vegetation that can endanger lives and property. The CVFD Ordinance 2022-01 can be found in the downloadable documents area below.

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 interface 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 Department conducts routine inspections throughout late Spring, Summer, and Fall as part of the vegetation management program. Failure to comply with a notice to destroy or order to abate issued by Chino Valley Fire can have substantial impacts, such as assessment of fees, fines, and/or clearance by the district’s contracted vegetation clearance contractor. To assist property owners, we have established a courtesy contractor list and a weed abatement guide. Please locate the CVFD Weed Abatement Contractor Courtesy list and the Weed Abatement Guide in the downloadable documents area below.

Each respective city adopts fire hazard severity maps within the fire district’s jurisdiction. To find out if you reside in a designated high fire hazard area, please locate the Fire Hazard Overlay 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 e-mail us weeds@chofire.org.
