Did you receive notice of a Wildfire Defensible Space & Home Hardening Evaluation?

Reports are now ready for viewing for properties that received a 6-digit inspection code.

MWPA Member agencies may evaluate properties for defensible space, vegetation, and structure vulnerabilities to wildfire. Property owners will receive comprehensive online evaluation reports with details on defensible space requirements and recommendations for "hardening" homes to resist embers (up to 90% of homes lost to wildfires are ignited from embers - not your neighbor's plants).

Most properties in Marin will receive an inspection every other year. Updated reports will be issued every 1-3 years for properties in the wildland urban interface (WUI).


Evaluation frequency and timing may vary by region in Marin. Please contact your local fire agency for information or to request an evaluation.
