Valley Center Fire Protection District
Dear Property Owner,
an effort to provide prompt and efficient emergency services
to our customers, the Valley Center Fire Protection District
is surveying all bridges, culverts and other crossings
within our jurisdiction to ensure compliance with District,
County and State fire codes. This effort is in response
to the identification of several substandard, non-permitted
bridges or culverts in the district, with the ultimate
goal of preventing our fire apparatus from falling through
a bridge or collapsing a culvert. Our staff has conducted
a survey and determined that there is a bridge or culvert
on your property. We will be requiring that all private
bridges and culverts have the maximum vehicle load limits
posted on both entrances to the elevated structure.
order to ensure the safety of our personnel and equipment,
we cannot guarantee our fire apparatus will cross your
bridge or culvert until such time as we receive verification
that your elevated structure will support a capacity of
75,000 pounds. Rest assured we will continue to provide
prompt service to your property; however, service will
likely be delayed if the capacity of your structure remains
unanswered. Verification of capacity may be accomplished
by one of the following:
1. Provide proof of a permit, or obtain a permit from
the County of San Diego, Department of Planning &
Land Use (858) 694-2960
If your bridge or culvert cannot be permitted by the County,
obtain written verification from a licensed structural
engineer. You may find such engineers in the yellow pages
thank you for your prompt attention in this matter. Should
you have any questions, please contact me at (760) 751-7600.
A completed county permit or verification can be mailed
to Mike Shore, Fire Marshal at the above address.

tragedy and survival. And, while the VCFPD and other emergency
responders are dedicated to making your life safer, no one
agency or governmental entity can do everything that needs
to be done to protect you in all circumstances.
planning includes having knowledge of your community, its
