Defensible Space Evaluations begin June 9 in East Corte Madera, Meadowsweet and Chapman neighborhoods
Central Marin Fire Department, in partnership with neighboring fire agencies and the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA), will conduct Wildfire Defensible Space and Home Hardening Evaluations on residential properties in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) areas of East Corte Madera, Meadowsweet and Chapman neighborhoods of Corte Madera starting June 9.
A comprehensive report for each property will be available online following the evaluation. This report will provide steps to reduce your property’s vulnerability and improve your safety from wildfires. Some actions outlined in this report are required by law.
We encourage residents to accompany the Inspectors for a socially distanced tour of their property to find areas that could be improved for defensible space and home-hardening. If nobody is home, that’s okay! Inspectors will evaluate the property from the road/driveway and leave instructions to retrieve the online report.
