Free defensible space service is available for residents who are low-income, disabled or senior citizens (age 65+), or veterans. 
 
Through this service, households receive 100' defensible space around the main residence structure, including tree limbing up to 6′ height.  This program helps households meet fire department requirements and best practices for fuel reduction and fire safety.

 

This program does not include deferred maintenance, communal property or easements, or hauling of debris.  For the safety of our youth, all animals, domestic and livestock, must be corralled or kept inside while C.R.E.W. is working on the property. Failure to do so may result in rescheduling.

 

Complete the form below and we’ll follow up to schedule your clearance day! Call The CREW office at 805-649-8847 with any questions.

 

The Ojai and Santa Paula Wildfire Safety Program is offered to residents free of charge. This program is  made possible by generous contributions and grants from CAL FIRE.
