The mission of the fire safe council is "to reduce the loss of natural and human made resources caused by wildfire through Firewise Community programs and pre-fire activities." The meeting is open to all interested members of the public. Fire safe council members are encouraging residents to take advantage of this drier-than-normal weather to be outdoors and beginning to create or maintain their defensible spacel as it could come in handy this summer. The resident of the home has the most control over its survival in a wildfire. Research and experience shows that that homes without wood shake roofs and at least 30 feet of defensible space have at least an 86 percent chance of survival, even without anyone present. California residents are required to have 100 feet of defensible space around all structures, or to their property lines. For additional information on defensible space, visit and click on the "Homeowner Information" tab and the "Home Ignition Zone" links.
