–On Monday morning, March 9, 2020, firefighters will be burning several small slash piles created as the first phase of a community-wide fire hazard abatement project.

The Los Osos Fire Safe Focus Group, in cooperation with the Department of Fish & Wildlife, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and County Planning removed and piled dead vegetation into small piles adjacent to homes on the south side of Highland Drive within the Morro Dunes Ecological Reserve.
