The Montecito Fire Protection District will begin its annual neighborhood fire prevention cleanup program starting the week of February 25, 2019. The program is offered to residents in the community to reduce the volume of flammable vegetation in order to create a more defensible and survivable space around the property and to reduce the overall community threat from wildfire. 

Announcements sent to property owners located in the designated neighborhoods prior to the project include the schedule and instructions on how they can participate.  The District’s Wildland Specialists offer property inspections to educate the residents on ways they can improve the defensible space around their home. View a map of the project here.

To speak to one of our Wildland Specialists Maeve Juarez or Nic Elmquist about this program, phone 805-969-7762.
