Contact Nevada County OES for Neighborhood Fire Inspections

DSI_NewsFlash

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 fire inspectors to work throughout the summer. Due to increased fire risk, OES 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 filing out Nevada County's Fire Inspection Request form online at ReadyNevadaCounty.org. 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.

Below are additional resources on emergency preparedness and fire safety:

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.
