Who is the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council?

The mission of the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council (FSC) is to:

Serve as a forum for the implementation of the measures outlined in the Master Fire Protection Plan (MFPP), share fire-safety information, assess fire risk, promote community fire-safe planning and coordination, link fire-prevention programs, and support the fire service and local fire safe councils.

The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors formed the ad-hoc advisory FSC in 2002 to guide the development of a countywide Fire Plan and assist with its implementation. With the guidance of the FSC, the County of Humboldt prepared the "Humboldt County Master Fire Protection Plan", the County's equivalent to a Community Wildfire Protection Plan CWPP).

The fire plan was completed and approved by the Board of Supervisors in 2006 and is intended to be used as a framework for fire coordination, prevention, and protection throughout the county. The Community Development Services Department managed the Fire Plan preparation with assistance from local consultants, Planwest Partners and ForEverGreen Forestry. The FSC is now in the process of guiding a two year plan-update process with the goal of presenting an updated plan to the Board of Supervisors in August of 2012. Look for a workshop in your area!

The Council also serves as a forum for community organizations and representatives to share fire-safety information, assess fire risk, set fire protection priorities, and develop policies for integration into the County General Plan.
