(Victor Valley)– Fires are a serious problem in Southern California. In an effort to reduce the threat of wild fires, the San Bernardino County Fire Hazard Abatement (FHA) Program enforces fire hazard requirements. The primary function of the FHA Program is to reduce the risk of fires by pro-actively establishing defensible space and reduction/removal of flammable materials on properties.
The FHA Program conducts two surveys per year during early spring and fall, with canvassing for Hesperia beginning in October. Fire hazards are identified and notices to abate the hazard(s) are mailed to property owners. Property owners are given 30 days to abate the violations. Failure to abate may result in citations, penalties, and/or fees. FHA is an important component in keeping our communities safe and minimizing the devastating effects of wild fires.
FHA may be reached at the following numbers: (909) 884-4056 & (760) 995-8140.
