You may be eligible for the TCF's Defensible Space Assistance Program (Program) at no cost to you.
The Program is intended to help Tehama County citizens 65+ years of age as well as those who are physically unable to create the required defensible space surrounding their home.
Eligible properties must be located in Tehama County within the targeted State Responsibility Area (SRA) and Wild Urban Interface Zone (WUI) as noted in green on the Eligibilty Map below. Properties within the green areas have a Very High, High, or Medium Fire Hazard Class.
Defensible Space is a 100 foot buffer surrounding a home or other building that slows or stops the spread of wildfire. It helps protect your home and neighboring structures from direct flame contact or radiant heat ignition. It also improves protection for fire personnel defending your property.
We are developing educational workshops connecting citizens with local fire specialist and want to make sure your questions are answered. Join the conversation and let us know what you'd like to know more about. Call the Tehama Conservation Fund at the RCDTC office at (530) 727-1280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
