About Local Fire Safe Councils

Nearly 150 communities throughout CA have created Fire Safe Councils to help protect their homes and neighborhoods from the devastating effects of wildfire. San Diego is home to 46 community Fire Safe Councils, more than any other area in California.

Community Fire Safe Councils have been referred to as the “neighborhood watch” in supporting San Diego’s fire safety efforts. As grassroots, community-led organizations, they mobilize residents to protect their homes, neighborhoods, and environments from wildfire. They know the unique challenges their community faces and implement such projects as hazardous fuel reduction programs, local wildfire protection planning, and homeowner training to ensure its protection.

The Fire Safe Council of San Diego County brings together community fire safe councils, local, state, and federal fire agencies, and other stakeholders. By working together across the County, we can utilize our combined experience, expertise, and common objectives to ensure our homes, businesses and communities are well-protected from the threats of wildfire.
