Sleepy Hollow, a 1610 acre unincorporated development near San Anselmo, was accredited as a Firewise Community for 2016, in recognition of specific activities and projects related to hazardous vegetation removal, community events and training, and long-term planning and preparedness goals that will dramatically reduce the risk of wildfire for all residents and visitors to Sleepy Hollow. Firewise Communities may receive specific benefits, such as discounts on homeowners insurance for residents, and access to grant funding opportunities for future hazard reduction projects.
As part of their commitment to Firewise principles, Sleepy Hollow Fire Protection District developed a comprehensive assessment of the wildfire risk and hazard in their community.
