Membership Application

The Santa Clara County FireSafe Council (SCFSC) is a non-profit organization protecting many communities at risk from wildfire in Santa Clara County. Our programs and projects are funded by multiple public and private sources, and members include fire agencies, open space managers, city governments and private citizens.
