Local Fire Safe Councils
Local Fire Safe Councils(FSC) throughout California are developing
fire safe plans and fire hazard reduction projects in local communities. These
councils are voluntary organizations typically consisting of representatives from state and federal fire agencies,
local concerned citizens, and local fire districts and fire protection organizations. FSCs form to enhance the
effectiveness of fire protection and prevention by securing grant funds and volunteer support for fire hazard reduction
projects and community fire-safety education.
FSCs can provide a valuable service in the development of the fire protection and prevention policies and
implementation measures of the Safety Element. Fire Plans developed by FSCs can inform the processes of
updating the Humboldt County General Plan and/or the creation of the County Master Fire Protection Plan. The
Humboldt County Fire Safe Council encourages the development of local volunteer FSCs and their participation
in the sharing of fire-safety related information, fire risk assessment and fire protection and prevention
