Fire Safe Council of Nevada County

The Fire Safe Council of Nevada County is a public benefit, non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation  formed in 1998 by citizens concerned about the very high potential for catastrophic wildfire in our communities and adjacent forestland. 

The purpose of the Fire Safe Council is to work to reduce the risk of life and property loss from wildfire.  We actively seek public and private funding to provide a wide range of landowner assistance programs, services and community fuels reduction projects in order to reduce the fire danger for all Nevada County residents.  We utilize national and local public education programs to increase public awareness of the high potential for fire devastation, and deliver clear and accurate information to help the public prepare for the next wildfire event. 

Fire Safe Council programs have been developed to educate, communicate and promote action to respond to the wildfire hazard in Nevada County.
