Welcome to the 
Calaveras Foothills Fire Safe Council!

The Mission of the Calaveras Foothills Fire Safe Council is to maintain the quality of life for residents (human as well as local animal and vegetation species) as we coexist within each Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) Zone in the Council's sphere of influence that encompasses Calaveras County and portions of Western Alpine County to achieve effective fire protection through education, guidance, and planning as we: 

Maintain a Healthy Forest

Educate as to fire hazards and fire behavior 

The primary purpose of the Calaveras Foothills Fire Safe Council is to help protect our citizens, their property, and our natural resources from the effects of catastrophic wildland fire within Calaveras and adjacent counties.

The intent of this Council is to: 

Educate the public about fire threat and fire prevention measures 

Be fire safe! This could happen again!

Improve circulation for evacuation 
Reduce the potential for fire loss damage 
Improve fire safety by reducing dangerous fuel loads

This mission will be accomplished through interagency and neighborhood coordination, along with a strong public and private partnership focusing on public education, exchanging of information, and fostering fire prevention and fire safety to make homes, neighborhoods, and communities fire safe within Calaveras and adjacent counties.
