Wildfire Safety and Prevention

Wildfire Property Inspections

Timberline Fire Protection District does not provide mitigation assessments for property owners. We are unable to assume the associated liability. With limited staffing we are also unable to provide on site consultation for individual home owners. We will however meet with home owner groups of 10 or more for information sessions utilizing much of the material listed on this page.
