Why do I have to clear around my house?

Our FHRP (Fire Hazard Reduction Program) is a cooperative effort between the Ventura County Fire Department and the property owners to create and maintain a "defensible space" around structures.  This provides a safe area for firefighters to defend the property and offers the best chance of survival when threatened by wildfire. The value of the FHRP program has been proven many times over the years. For requirements on clearing around your house, see Wildland Brush Clearance & Landscaping Guides.
