Mobilizing the people of Santa Clara County to protect their homes, communities and environment from wildfires


SCFSC Must Continue to Raise Funds

The Santa Clara County FireSafe Council has two federal grants for 2014-2015 from the USDA Forest Service through the California Fire Safe Council and agreements with Cities and Fire Districts for Defensible Space Fuel Reduction Programs in Communities at Risk from wildfires in Santa Clara County.  Federal grants are declining and we must continue to raise local grants and donations to build a truly sustainable organization and maintain the momentum we have gained over the last several years.

Our programs and projects are focused on protecting the 14 Communities at Risk for wildfire in Santa Clara County: Cupertino, East Foothills, Gilroy, Lexington Hills, Los Altos Hills, Los Gatos, Milpitas, Monte Sereno, Morgan Hill, Palo Alto, San Jose, San Martin, Saratoga and Stanford. These communities are at risk of wildfires because they have expansive accumulations of fire prone vegetation.

In 2013, our Defensible Space Fuel Reduction Programs helped protect 3,900 homes, 11,700 people, and $3.9 Billion in property values. In addition to our chipping programs, we completed seven Special Needs projects where we do the clearing as well as chipping for qualified seniors, low income and disabled residents.  We also did six clearing, fuel break and evacuation route projects in fire prone areas of the County.  We're on track to meet our Fuel Reduction Objectives for 2014.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to SCFSC and partner with us to keep Santa Clara County “Fire Safe!”

The Santa Clara County FireSafe Council is a non-profit organization which relies completely on donations and grants to further our mission to keep Santa Clara County residents, property and wildlands safe from the devastating effects of wildfire.  Our IRS FEIN is 56-2368255 and our IRS name is Santa Clara Fire Safe Council Inc.

All donations, large or small, are gratefully accepted and deeply appreciated.
