Following several fires in the BABCNC hillsides started by metal-blade weed whackers used for brush clearance (including but not limited to the Roscomare fire in June of 2017), the BABCNC Emergency Preparedness Committee, has been seeking a ban on metal-blade weed whackers in these hillsides, which are considered to be a "Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone" (VHFHSZ).
We are pleased to say that the brush clearance (weed whacker) ordinance, based on recommendations in a report by LAFD Chief Terrazas was approved by the Public Safety Committee and has been submitted to City Council for consideration on Wednesday October 10th @ 10:00 am @ City Hall 200 North Spring Street, Room #340 Los Angeles, CA 90012.
