Will the project have a negative impact on fire safety?

Fire safety was fully studied as part of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) prepared for the project. In consultation with the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District, the report found that the project would not have a significant impact on fire safety in the area. The project would also include three evacuation routes through the open space area to the south and west in addition to Blackhawk Road.  You can watch and listen to the information provided by the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District’s Fire Marshall on this subject at: https://danville-ca.granicus.com/player/clip/1170?view_id=9. Discussion starts at the 50:00 minute mark and finishes at 56:30.
