FAIRFIELD — A customer call center has been created by the state to answer questions created by the fire prevention fee.
A law signed into action this summer, Assembly Bill X1 29, established a fee for landowners to be used to help fund fire prevention. Those bills began to be mailed in August, creating some confusion.
A website was created at www.FirePreventionFee.org earlier this year and now comes the call center. The number is 888-310-6447 and will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The revenue collected from the fee pays for fire prevention services within the state’s responsibility area. Those services include brush clearing, fire break construction, space inspections, fire prevention engineering, emergency evacuation planning, fire prevention education and fire hazard severity mapping.
