Creating safe evacuation routes for residents and emergency responders by investing in fuel reduction in Central Marin and Ross Valley.
About the Program
The Central Marin and Ross Valley Wildfire Access/Egress Fuel Reduction Program was initiated to reduce vegetation fuels adjacent to primary ingress and egress evacuation route roadways in central Marin County. The project heightens the safety of evacuating residents and provides alternate or improved means of access and egress for responding fire apparatus.
This program is funded by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) California Climate Investments Fire Prevention Grants Program.
