As we celebrate Women’s History Month, we recognize the fight for equality, justice and progress made by those who paved the way for future generations. On behalf of the City Council, we join you in commemorating this celebration – to all of the women out there, thank you for your strength, your courage, and your unwavering commitment to making the world a better place. 

The City of Diamond Bar is situated among some of the most beautiful native landscape in the region, which can pose an increased fire risk during the dry summer months.  We’ve had quite a bit of rain this year, and in preparation for the summer season, there are steps you can take now to best prepare your home.

The Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) focuses on efforts to educate residents on the importance of preparing for wildfires starting with its annual brush clearance program. In addition to their firefighting and emergency medical service duties, LACoFD personnel are actively involved in special training programs and brush inspections that focus on fire safety and property protection. The Brush Task Force begin inspection of parcels in the brush zone the first week in May, with approximately 3,300 residents receiving direct communication if your property is within that area. Residents may access fire safety tips and additional information by visiting the LACoFD website at

Mark your calendars, the City will be hosting Breakfast with the Bunny on Saturday, April 1st. Starting at 11:00 am a very special bunny will be making its stop at the Diamond Bar Center to take part in a fun-filled morning. Recommended for families with children ages 2 to 8, breakfast will be served followed by seasonal crafts, games, interactive dancing and a photo with the bunny.
