Message from the Fire Marshal Each year in mid-April the Fire District sends out over 13,000 postcards advising property owners of the June 15th deadline to abate their properties to be in compliance with the Moraga-Orinda Fire District’s Exterior Hazard Control Standards. All District property owners have a shared responsibility to provide a fire safe environment and maintain their property free of exterior fire hazards throughout the fire season.
