Wildfire Prevention Direct Assistance

Need help creating defensible space image

Wildfire Prevention Direct Assistance Request Form

Thanks to Measure C, we are able to work with our partnering organizations to directly help low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners reduce the wildfire risk around their home as well as other wildfire mitigation work. These partnerships will help create a more resilient and fire-safe San Rafael.

To request assistance with the removal of Juniper, Italian cypress, bamboo, acacia, or similar defensible space vegetation removal work, please complete the waiver of liability form linked below:
