Annual Hazard Inspections Begin mid-May, 2018

Beginning mid-May 2018, a team of Fire Inspectors from Kentfield Fire Protection District will begin annual wildfire hazard inspections of all parcels in the Kent Woodlands, and other WUI parcels in Kentfield. These wildfire hazard inspections will be more thorough than in years past and will provide homeowners with valuable written input on specific ways to reduce the hazard near your home. Data collected will help us map and better understand wildfire risk across the whole community. Some parcels, especially those near open space, may receive an even more thorough inspection, and all homeowners will have an opportunity for dialogue with wildfire experts.  Learn more...
