As we approach the fire season, the Escondido Fire Department wanted to reach out and educate property owners whose property resides in a dangerous high fire zone area. The intent with the letter is to remind and educate
property owners of the local vegetation hazard abatement requirements. While these requirements are essential for properties in fire hazard areas, it's still a good reminder for all property owners about the need to develop and maintain defensible space.
