Weed Clearance

Sure, weeds are unsightly. But if you live in an urban/wildland interface area, they can also be deadly. Learn how to protect your home and property by maintaining a clear, defensible space.
Defensible Space

The City's grant-funded defensible space program trains residents on how to best protect their homes from wildfires and offers a free wood chipping service. Take advantage of this valuable service; you'll be glad you did.
Annual Fire Safety Inspections

The Fire Marshal's Office is responsible for coordinating and conducting fire and life safety inspection services for the City of Hayward. This critical work is every bit as important as emergency response, because the best fire to fight is one that never starts.
Hazardous Materials

The Hazardous Materials Office ensures the consistent regulation of hazardous materials and waste throughout the state. Staffed by four civilian employees, the program’s efforts are focused on regulating the storage and use of hazardous materials in the City of Hayward.
