Urgent Fire Safety Work in 2013

Urgent fire safety measures in the UCSF Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve were completed in September 2013.  These measures covered approximately 12 acres within the Reserve and were implemented in order to help protect residents and homes adjacent to the Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve, as well as the UCSF Medical Center and facilities at Parnassus Heights.

The measures were in response to an assessment last summer by the San Francisco Fire Department that found “extra hazardous fire conditions” in the urban forest. Under state law, those conditions require 100 feet of fuel clearance around all structures within and bordering the Reserve – specifically shrubs and small trees that could provide a fire ladder into the forest canopy, should a fire occur.  Pictures of this project can be viewed here.
