FIRE DEPARTMENT ALERT

DEADLINE NEARS FOR JUNIPER and BAMBOO REMOVAL

We are rapidly approaching the Dec. 31, 2023 deadline for residents and businesses to remove junipers and bamboo that are located within 10 ft of roadways, per MOFD ordinance. This task is especially important because the intense flames produced by these scrubs can impede road transit, including fire-fighting equipment. This requirement and deadline have been known for several years, and many have acted, but many still need to act prior to 2024 to enhance safety for all and avoid being cited.

For more information, please go to the Moraga-Orinda Fire District website, or call the Fire District directly at (925) 258-4599.”
