Active County Emphasis Areas

Each year, El Dorado County identifies County Emphasis Areas and is in the process of conducting defensible space inspections in partnership with local fire districts. The goal of these inspections is to provide homeowners valuable information on how they can meet their defensible space requirement and make their homes more resilient to wildfire.
