California Fire Safe Council Inaugural

Resilience Brilliance Awards

& the CFSC Annual Conference

The 2021 Inaugural California Fire Safe Council Resilience Brilliance Awards & Conference

October 5 & 6, Sacramento

The California Fire Safe Council is starting an annual practice of formally recognizing partner efforts and results toward creating a wildfire-resilient California. We have long recognized the great community work that leads California in wildfire mitigation but have not had a process to highlight the efforts and results for state and community leaders and residents. This is the year that changes, and we need your help.

Because 2021 is our inaugural year, complicated by COVID, we will simplify the process and limit award categories this year. Below is a list of categories with a description and instructions for making a nomination.

Nominations will be DUE August 27, 2021, and awardees recognized at our Resilience Brilliance Awards ceremony October 5th in Sacramento.

Nominations will be ANNOUNCED September 17th. Nominees will be contacted and more information will be available.

Please take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the categories. You MAY nominate your own organization. There are TWO series of Awards.
