Can the Office of Emergency Services recommend a defensible space contractor?

The Office of Emergency Services cannot recommend a defensible space vendor, however, the Fire Safe Council maintains a vetted list of vendors on their website at https://www.areyoufiresafe.com/vendors. If you find a vendor outside of the Fire Safe Council’s vetted list, confirm the vendor you hire has a valid state license issued by the Contractors State License Board (CSLB). You may verify their license is valid on the State’s online contractor license verification tool: https://www.cslb.ca.gov/OnlineServices/CheckLicenseII/CheckLicense.aspx. Vendors with a CSLB will be experienced, bonded, and insured.
