San Bruno Fires Project

What is the San Bruno Fires Project?

The San Bruno Fires Project was started to address the fires on Caltrans right-of-way that are an unacceptable danger to the homes that border the Caltrans right-of-way.

The problem has multiple causes:

  • Homeless encampments with warming fires
  • Overgrown landscaping
  • Insufficient landscape maintenance workforce
  • Multiple jurisdictions involved – Caltrans, SF HOM, SF PW, SFFD, SFPD

We have established a team which is meeting monthly to come up with a solution.

Team Representation:

  • SFFD
  • Caltrans Maintenance
  • CHP
  • D10 Supervisor Rep
  • CA Assembly Office (David Chui)
  • Neighbors
  • Potrero Boosters

Below please find agendas and minutes from meetings
