WHFD Wildland Fire

Wildland Fire

California Wildfires

Is your home safe from Wildfire?

Fire season is officially here!

We want to take a moment and thank all the wonderful members of our community who over the winter met together several times to complete our City of Woodland Hills Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). More details on what this means for you as a citizen of our community will follow.

 

Please make sure that your home is in compliance with the City Ordinances regarding defensible space, clearing dead limbs and brush. Roads and the easements on both sides are the best line of defense in protecting our city from a spreading wildfire. Below is listed a document that can help you in your preparation and planning for brush removal on your property.

 

Our Fire Department is specially trained to be able to combat wildland fires. The WHFD has several Brush trucks as well as fire Engines that are capable of fighting wildfires. Additional training as well as practice mocks occur on a regular basis in our city.

 

If you see or smell anything suspicious, please DO NOT HESITATE to CALL 911! The earlier our Fire Dept as well as surrounding departments are able to respond the better the outcome.

 

Below are listed several resources including videos to help firefighters as well as citizens in protecting our city from Wildfires.
