Fire Safe Council

Wildfire in San Diego – it’s a not a matter of if, but when.

San Diego County has been home to three of the twenty largest fires in California.  Wildfires not only destroy life and property, but also damage our air, watersheds, wildlife habitat, health, and our quality of life.

The Fire Safe Council of San Diego County was formed in 1997 as a nonprofit corporation (501c3) in the state of California through a collaboration between the Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego County (RCD), along with local, state, federal, and tribal fire agency partners. The RCD manages the programs and the funds for the Fire Safe Council of San Diego County. 


Community Fire Safe Councils


The Fire Safe Council of San Diego County is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing fire safety awareness and preparedness, managing fire hazards, and supporting forest health in San Diego County.

Helping San Diego residents prevent, prepare for, and deal with the aftermath of these devastating wildfires is the goal of the Fire Safe Council of San Diego County. Through our programs and our support of community Fire Safe Councils, we are committed to making San Diego fire safe.

The Fire Safe Council of San Diego County is the umbrella organization for the 38 community fire safe councils within San Diego County. We support community fire safe councils by holding bi-monthly meetings, providing guidance and support for Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs), hosting fire safety workshops, and offering technical assistance.
