Weed Abatement: A Year Round Commitment to Safety

Apr 21, 2023 | Community News, Safety Tips

The Chino Valley Fire District requires property owners to clear weeds, rubbish, and other combustible vegetation from their property before May 1.

If a hazard exists on or after May 1, property owners will be notified by mail. Properties that are not cleared by the reinspection date of June 14 will be given a $300 non-compliance penalty and ordered for abatement by the Fire District contractor. The cost to clear the hazard and a $328 administration fee will be billed to the property owner.

Helpful Tips

  • Use trimming, mowing, and power equipment before 10 a.m. and after 6 p.m.
  • Never use a lawn mower in dry vegetation. Use a weed trimmer to cut dry weeds and grass.
  • Keep a cell phone nearby and call 911 immediately in case of a fire. Never put yourself in
    harm’s way to extinguish an advancing fire.
  • Remove rocks in the area before you begin operating any equipment. A rock hidden in grass
    or weeds can start a fire when struck by a metal blade.
  • Use the recommended grade of fuel for power equipment and don’t top off.
  • Keep your mower’s engine free of an accumulation of oil, dust, and any flammable materials.
