2016 Defensible Space Hazardous Fuel Reduction Programs
NOTICE: Chipping services have ended for Lexington Hills, Los Gatos, and Saratoga for 2016. For south San Jose, Morgan Hil, Gilroy, and all other areas of Santa Clara County, chipping applications will not be accepted after July 31, 2016. Thank you for preparing your defensible space before the start of fire season!
The Santa Clara County FireSafe Council has agreements, contributions and federal grants for:
- A Defensible Space Chipping Program for eligible residents, and
- A Special Needs Assistance Program (SNAP) for seniors and/or others with physical and financial limitations which prevent them from preparing for chipping.
For more on Defensible Space, see Living With Fire in Santa Clara County.
