Kent Woodlands Evacuation Route Clearance Begins September 2019


Kentfield Fire Protection District has identified high hazard areas in the Kent Woodlands where improvements can be made to reduce the amount of hazardous vegetation located along PRIMARY and SECONDARY EVACUATION ROUTES. Many properties located on and around the Kent Woodlands were found to be non-compliant with fire code requirements for roadside vegetation clearance.

Kentfield Fire Protection District has partnered with FIRESafe MARIN and CAL FIRE to provide funding for the initial clearing of vegetation located along 8.73 miles of roadways, with a project budget of $130,991. Funding for this project is provided through a cooperative Fire Prevention Grant by CAL FIRE and California's Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund. During the months of September and October, 2019, for a period of 4-6 weeks, personnel from the Fire District and FIRESafe MARIN will be working with private contractors to begin the clearing of vegetation along the roadways.  Read below to learn more about this important program:

Annual Hazard Inspections

In May 2019, a team of Fire Inspectors from Kentfield Fire Protection District began annual wildfire hazard inspections of all parcels in the Kent Woodlands, and other WUI parcels in Kentfield. These wildfire hazard inspections will be more thorough than in years past and will provide homeowners with valuable written input on specific ways to reduce the hazard near your home. Data collected will help us map and better understand wildfire risk across the whole community. Some parcels, especially those near open space, may receive an even more thorough inspection, and all homeowners will have an opportunity for dialogue with wildfire experts.  Learn more...
