Annual Vegetation Survey Inspections

Located along the bay and stretching out into the lush hillsides, vegetation management is major concern for this community. Annually, inspections of all properties east of Mission Boulevard and south of D Street to the border of Union City are conducted to help identify areas at higher risk for fire due to inadequate vegetation management.

To assist with the annual inspections, the Hayward Fire Department and the Fairview Fire Protection District have subscribed to a new brush inspection/vegetation abatement software, 3Di Prevent, to create a new vegetation abatement inspection portal. 

Automating our entire annual vegetation survey inspection process allows our personnel to manage and supervise the annual vegetation survey inspections using tracking, mapping, reporting and planning tools. The information flows automatically; capturing progress with real-time data for real-time decisions.

Residents who live in the high-hazard fire areas, properties east of Mission Boulevard from the south side of D Street to the city limits south to Union City can register below to view the status and history of their property.
