Please be mindful that notifying the property owner and, if necessary, forced hazard abatement, is a costly and time-consuming process that may take 60-90 days. We appreciate your patience in working with our residents to abate these hazards. 

If you have received a Notice to Abate Hazard per the NCFPD Ordinance 2000-01, please follow the instructions noted to avoid additional reinspection fees. You may call 760-723-2010 if you have any questions.
