Contact OES for Neighborhood Fire Inspections

It is a top Board priority to reduce the risk and effects of wildfire by pursuing hazardous vegetation mitigation resources. This year, Nevada County Office of Emergency Services (OES) funded and hired three additional fire inspectors for a total of four fire inspection staff throughout the summer. With increased fire risk, OES has retained a fire inspector through the winter months as well.

Fire inspectors assess fire safety hazards around homes and can advise residents on the best way to create defensible space and harden a home against fire. 

Fire inspections can be requested for a property or neighborhood by filling out Nevada County's Fire Inspection Request form online. Residents can find out their designated fire district through Nevada County's MyNeighborhood Maps. Many fire districts perform fire inspections for residents within their fire district, such as Penn Valley Fire District and Nevada County Consolidated Fire District. Fire inspectors from Nevada County OES or CalFire are available to perform fire inspections for all Nevada County residents regardless of fire district.

For more information about emergency preparedness and fire safety, take a look at the 18-19 Fire Season Guide, visit CalFire's Ready for Wildfire website, find community resources from the Fire Safe Council of Nevada County, and don't forget to sign yourself and your family up for CodeRED Emergency Alerts online or by dialing 2-1-1 to sign up over the phone with 211 Connecting Point.
