12B Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter California Fire Safe Council elects new chairman The California Fire Safe Council has elected Jerry Davies as the new chairman, effective Jan. 1. Davies replaces Pat Kidder, who served as chairman for the past four years. Kidder, a board member since the founding of CFSC, will remain on the board as an active member. Davies has been a board member since 1995, when he was recruited to serve by the founder of CFSC,+Bruce Turbeville. He has an extensive insurance industry background and has served in key roles dealing with fire and disaster prevention as well as recovery operations, reports the organization. He currently serves as co-chairman of the State Board of Fire Services and is a board member of the Fire Service Training Institute. As chairman Of CFSC, Davies says he will continue its mission in working with fire safe councils and communities throughout California to reduce the impact of wildfire. "I look forward to continuing the close working relationship between CFSC and local fire safe councils on shared efforts and common messages," Davies said. "The local fire safe councils and Firewise Communities in California have become models for the rest of the United States. "The CFSC board will also expand opportunities for the private sector to participate in CFSC's many workshops, seminars, and community events," continued Davies, "while CFSC continues to fund wildfire mitigation projects through the Grants Clearinghouse." CFSC is a statewide nonprofit organization. It currently receives grants from federal agencies to provide subgrants to fire safe councils and other organizations using CFSC's online Grants Clearinghouse system, which began in 2004. Recognized throughout the industry for its comprehensive program, CFSC administers and monitors the subgrants, from application to closeout, in accordance with the federal grant regulations. CFSC staff provides unparalleled technical assistance and training to applicants and grantees. Since its inception, CFSC's Grants Clearinghouse has funded over 850 subgrants totaling more than $81 million for projects to make communities across California safer from wildfire.

Special hunts announced The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is offering spring turkey hunts in Yolo and Santa Barbara counties through the Shared Habitat Alliance for Recreational Enhancement Program. A total of 12 SHARE access permits will be provided to turkey hunters through a random drawing for eight two-day hunts. Each permit is valid for two hunters. In northern California, hunters will have an opportunity to access 4,000 acres of rolling blue oak woodlands on Bobcat Ranch located in Yolo County's Vaca Mountain foothills. In Southern California, Sleepy Creek and Jones ranches, both located in the West Cuyama Valley in Santa Barbara County, occupy a combined 1,000 acres of oak savannah, juniper sage woodland, chaparral and riparian habitats. Adjoining these ranches are approximately 250 acres of Bureau of Land Management property and the Los Padres National Forest, which provide additional opportunities. Separate applications need to be submitted for each location. Hunters with a valid California hunting license may apply online at A $10.25 nonrefundable application fee will be charged for each hunt choice. Successful applicants for each property will be allowed to bring a hunting partner or a nonhunting partner. These opportunities are made possible by the SHARE Program, which offers incentives to private landowners who allow wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities on their property. Participating landowners receive liability protection and compensation for providing public access to or through their land. The goal of the SHARE Program is to provide additional hunting, fishing and other recreational access on private lands in California. For more information about the SHARE Program, visit share.
