Defensible Space Fuel Reduction at Gerstle Park Open Space beginning November 9th, 2022

Posted on November 14, 2022


Gerstle Park

The San Rafael Fire Department will be conducting vegetation work in the San Rafael open space behind Gerstle Park as a part of an MWPA-funded Fuel Reduction Project.

The City of San Rafael is part of the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA). In 2020, Marin County voters passed special tax Measure C, which established a Joint Powers Authority, the MWPA, to fund and oversee proactive state-of-the-art wildfire prevention and preparedness efforts within the County. The purpose of the project is to reduce excessive fuels and fire hazardous vegetation within 100 feet of homes. The project will also improve access by local fire departments in the event of an emergency. 

For questions or inquiries, please contact San Rafael Fire Department’s Hazard Mitigation Coordinator, Kate Anderson at (415)-485-3327 or kate.anderson@cityofsanrafael.org
