Paso Robles City Press Releases

Posted on: March 14, 2023

[ARCHIVED] Message from Fire Chief Jonathan Stornetta regarding potential increase in fire severity rating

Emergency Services Logo

The Office of the State Fire Marshal is proposing a hazard severity zone increase in the Paso Robles region. Any increase in severity levels will impact our building codes, fire codes, insurance premiums, and construction costs.

Here is a template letter I referenced during my recent Fire Hazard Severity Zone presentation to City Council and to the Chamber of Commerce.

If you would like to send in your comments, the Office of the State Fire Marshal is providing a written comment period for State Responsibility Area Fire Hazard Severity Zones until April 4, 2023.

Comment can be made through email at or submitted by U.S. mail to the following address:

Office of the State Fire Marshal
C/O: FHSZ Comments
California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection
P.O. Box 944246
Sacramento, CA 94244-2460

Please help in disseminating this information. The consequence of these proposed changes is significant to our region and residents.

Thank you,

Jonathan Stornetta
Fire Chief
City of Paso Robles
900 Park Street, Paso Robles, CA 93446
