Seasonal Defensible Space Inspections Begin April 20

Central Marin Fire Department, in partnership with neighboring fire agencies and the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA), will conduct Wildfire Defensible Space and Home Hardening Evaluations on residential properties in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) areas of Palm Hill, Christmas Tree Hill, Baltimore Canyon, Sycamore Canyon, Skylark and Murray Park neighborhoods of Larkspur and Corte Madera starting April 20, 2022.

A comprehensive report for each property will be available online following the evaluation at This report will provide a detailed ianalysis of each home's wildfire vulnerabilities, and nstructions to improve your safety from wildfires. Some actions outlined in these report are required by law and must be corrected within 30 days.

New for 2022 - Reinspections will occur on or after 30 days. Please plan to complete necessary work as soon as possible.

We encourage residents to accompany the Inspectors for a socially distanced tour of their property to find areas that could be improved for defensible space and home-hardening. If nobody is home, that’s okay! Inspectors will evaluate the property from the road/driveway and leave instructions to retrieve the online report.

Please or 415 275-1185 with any questions.
