SB County Fire Department is conducting their annual Defensible space fire inspections beginning this week. If you haven't done your clearing yet, nows the time.
A minimum of 100 feet of defensible space is required around your home in Santa Barbara County. Engine companies will perform inspections and provide homeowners with educational material on how to comply. With the year-round threat of wildfire, the defensible space requirement is enforced at all times in Santa Barbara County. Non-compliant homeowners are subject to be cited.
