You may recall receiving a letter earlier this week from North County Fire Authority, asking you to trim down any excessive weeds located on your property. The importance of doing so should be of no surprise, especially in light of the 2008 fire that erupted on a quiet Sunday evening on San Bruno Mountain, burned the northern side of the Mountain, Owl and Buckeye Canyons, specifically (click here to take a look back at the incident via the former blog). As the rains cease and fire season approaches, the Fire Department wants to ensure that Brisbane residents are doing all they can to prevent the fire from having any more fuel than what's already afforded by grasses found on the Mountain.
Please make sure your property is in compliance by the deadline outlined in the letter: May 16, 2011, as this will be the week the Fire Department will begin inspecting all properties for compliance. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Clyde Preston, Safety Inspector, Fire Prevention Services Bureau 650-991-5741. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this vastly important effort!
