Meeting the County’s Highest Fire Safety Standards
The new Lilac Hills Ranch is designed to meet the highest fire protection standards in San Diego County. The project will provide a new or expanded fire station that will ensure emergency responders can reach every home in the community in less than 5 minutes.
The community will pay more than $1.3 million annually to the Deer Springs Fire Protection District. The funds will benefit the local district and strengthen the regional fire protection network, making North County safer. The District has approved the community’s fire protection plan.
