The Contra Costa County Fire Protection District has minimum standards for weed abatement. Weed abatement and other vegetation management are part of the Defensible Space Initiative.
The primary purpose of the Fire District's Exterior Hazard Control Division is to limit the potential source of fuel for fire through the abatement of combustible rubbish and vegetation.
Property owners are ultimately responsible for managing their vegetation to meet fire district requirements. To report a property that is out of compliance with Fire District standards, please fill out this form.
