WOULD YOUR COMMUNITY LIKE TO ESTABLISH A FIRE SAFE COUNCIL?
The California Fire Safe Council was built to help create new Fire Safe Councils in California communities. We are working with current funding from State Farm Insurance Company, with other funders coming on board in early summer, to develop a new program to create many new local Fire Safe Councils.
The program’s aim is to establish new Fire Safe Councils; to help build the Council’s capacity to become a self-sufficient organization, able to plan and manage community wildfire preparedness projects, and able to acquire grant funding to accomplish their objectives.
We are especially interested in supporting vulnerable communities who normally do not have access to community organizing resources, or those communities within very high wildfire hazard severity zones, as defined by CAL FIRE. Social vulnerability factors including social isolation, poverty, language barriers, and other access and functional needs challenges.
