SCFSC Must Continue to Raise Funds
The Santa Clara County FireSafe Council has one federal grant for 2013-2014 from the USDA Forest Service through the California Fire Safe Council for Defensible Space Fuel Reduction Programs in selected Communities at Risk from wildfires in Santa Clara County. Federal grants are declining and we must continue to raise local, private funds to build a truly sustainable organization and maintain the momentum we have gained over the last several years.
In 2012, our Defensible Space Fuel Reduction Programs helped protect 3,625 homes, 10,850 people, and $3.6 Billion in property values. In addition to our chipping programs, we completed nine Special Needs projects where we do the clearing as well as chipping for qualified seniors, low income and disabled residents. We also did seven 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 2013.
