Weed Abatement Program

Property owners have a year-round responsibility and obligation to maintain vegetation on their property in a condition that will not contribute to the spread of fire. If you see violations of our abatement standards, call Hayward Fire Department  offices at 510-583-4930 and report it.  Effective fire prevention measures can keep fires from starting and reduce hazards that threaten yours and your neighbors’ property. The Hayward Fire Department in partnership with the Fairview Fire Protection District, conducts abatement surveys at least once a year.
