Box 1369 QUINCY, CA 95971 LIC. #:453927 Fire safe council ~ features structure protection video The Plumas County Fire Safe Council's July meeting takes place Thursday, July 10, at the Plumas County Planning and Building Services office, located at 555 Main St. in Quincy, from 9 to 11 a.m. The meetings occur on the second Thursday of each month. The council invites everyone to attend these meetings in order to get a sense of local activities that are happening to increase awareness and preparedness for : wfldland fires in Plumas County. The council is a coalition of citizens, business owners, fire departments and representatives of local, state and federal government agencies. The mission of the council is: "To reduce the loss of natural and human made resources caused by wildfire through Firewise Community programs and pre-fLre activities." Its website,, is currently featuring a short video that shows structure protection efforts during the Black Forest Fire in Colorado. This fire burned from June 11 to June 20, 2013. During that time it consumed 14,280 acres of forest land; destroyed at least 509 homes; and killed two people. Over $9 million was spent on fire suppression efforts and over $90 million of damage to homes resulted from the blaze. This fire is considered to have been the most destructive fire in Colorado history, surpassing the 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire. This video was recorded by a member of the Colorado Springs Fire Department; fu'efighters had been dispatched to protect structures as the fn'e spread through this neighborhood. The footage gives a first-hand look at fn'efighters providing structure protection; council members hope that this video will help to illustrate the importance of creating an area around all structures, known as defensible space, that is free of combustible material.
