What if I’m in a high-fire severity area?

Wildfires are a reality throughout our state, which is why it is important to understand the risk in your area. If your property is in a Fire Hazard Severity Zone or Fire Protection District there may be additional requirements or reviews. Find out about your location (use this Fire Department and Protection Districts resource list) and talk to City or County staff early on to learn how where you live might impact your ADU.

State agencies have developed several resources and guidelines to help. View the Fire Severity Zone Map  and plug your address into the Fire Hazard Severity Zone Tool to look up your property and identify your zone. Use the Homeowners Checklist and review the Disaster Ready Guide and Board of Forestry Code to make sure your ADU and property are fire safe.
