Safe Community Project



Meet Our Partners.

Our partners are an essential part of our organization. We believe strongly in collaboration, and these partners demonstrate our unique ability to develop long term public/private partnerships that work – life saving programs that help those most at risk. 

We're Grateful for Your Support.

Our partnerships are equalled only by those who support us in our life saving mission. Our commitment to a more resilient community cannot be successful without the input and support of those who see the need for improved fire safety, earthquake preparedness, cardiac intervention, and other essential public safety issues. Please consider supporting our efforts with a donation.

Preventing wildfires in the State Responsibility Area (SRA) is a vital part of CAL FIRE’s mission. While these efforts have occurred since the early days of the Department, CAL FIRE has adapted to the evolving destructive wildfires and succeeded in significantly increasing its efforts in fire prevention. Typical fire prevention projects include brush clearance, prescribed fire, defensible space inspections, emergency evacuation planning, fire prevention education, fire hazard severity mapping, and fire-related law enforcement activities.
