Brush Fire Season
Brush Fire Season seems like a never-ending season in Southern California; however, believe it or not true brush fire season will be upon us soon.
In April, the Burbank Fire Department mails out notices to property owners in the Fire Hazard Reduction Area requesting brush clearance to be completed by June 1st. Beginning June 1st, the Burbank Fire Department will begin inspections of the Fire Hazard Reduction Area.
The goal of the Burbank Fire Department is to establish a fire-safe community through voluntary compliance of informed property owners and residents.
We encourage our residents to prepare, plan, and stay informed.
