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.
