When it comes to wildfire, no single person alone can protect a community. The Napa Communities Firesafe Foundation is made up of neighborhood Fire Safe Councils (FSCs) who join forces to effectively reduce and prevent wildfire losses by mobilizing residents to protect their homes, communities and environments from wildfire. Our Fire Safe Councils are often sparked by a catalyst – perhaps a recent fire or a group of neighbors eager to spread a fire safe message – then embraced by the community, which turns that initial interest into a committed group that finds ways to empower the residents to do their part to make the community safer.
Our FSCs are working hard to educate homeowners about Fire Safe activities while working with local fire officials to design and implement projects that increase the wildfire survivability of their communities. Many of our Fire Safe Councils have successfully implemented such projects as hazardous fuel reduction projects, community wildfire protection planning, and homeowner training. Two excellent examples of this are the Angwin Fire Safe Council and the Mt. Veeder Fire Safe Council.
Following is a list of current Fire Safe Councils with contact information. If you are interested in forming a Fire Safe Council for your neighborhood, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
