The Los Altos Hills County Fire District supports a number of additional programs in addition to the primary ones of fire suppression, emergency response, and pipeline maintenance. These are important adjuncts in support of fulfilling its overall mission. The most significant of these programs include:
Public Classes. Regular public classes in emergency preparedness are conducted by district personnel. These are available to all district residents at no cost.
Brush Chipping. This program is also free and provides a service whereby residents who are faced with a large amount of brush (as a result pruning or clearing their properties for fire safety) can schedule a visit by a contractor with brush-chipping equipment to dispose of the debris.
Weed Abatement The district sends regular patrols to monitor fire safety throughout its area of coverage. Where a landowner is observed to have a dangerous situation on their property (as defined by The County Fire Marshall) then a cautionary note is sent to the property owner advising them of the need to remedy the situation.
