In Los Angeles County, abatement of hazardous vegetation
(weeds and brush) is a joint enforcement and clearance
effort between the County Departments of Fire and
the Agricultural Commissioner/Weights and Measures
(ACWM). While not Countywide, the cooperative effort covers
most of the County. Over the years, the program has
provided defensible space for firefighters, demonstrably
saved many homes from fires and almost certainly
prevented hundreds of fires from starting in the
first place. More information on the ACWM program is available using the Table of Contents in the upper left.
