California Fire Safe Councils

Collaboration is essential when reducing the risk of wildfire

MySafe:LA supports the efforts of the California Fire Safe Council to help residents to band together in the organized process of reducing the risk from wildfire. By working together, we can make a difference – one that will effectively reduce wildfire related losses, including injuries or deaths. 

The Fire Safe Council initiative has multiple benefits, including but not limited to:
  • Helps residents better protect their homes and properties
  • Potential qualifications for certain types of insurance discounts
  • Create a “community” effort related to reducing wildfire risk
  • Better connectivity with local first responders
  • Options for State mandated (qualified) insurance discounts
  • Access to possible “community wildfire” related grants
There are other benefits as well, the most important being that if you participate, you’ll reduce the risk of losing your home to a wildfire.

What about the NFPA Firewise USA program?

The California Fire Safe Council isn’t the only initiative available to residents in California. The NFPA’s Firewise USA program is also useful and important, but has some different requirements. To learn about becoming an NFPA Firewise USA site, visit this page.

MySafe:LA can help!

MySafe:LA is here to assist you. Our overall mission related to wildfire in the greater Los Angeles region is to help people improve their community and personal risk related to wildfire. We understand that the issue of “wildfire” is complex, and we’re here to help facilitate and work with you in an ongoing manner to ensure your efforts continue and create results that improve resilience and reduce stress. It’s at the heart of our “Los Angeles Wildfire Resilience Alliance.”

We provide a number of supporting capabilities, including:
  • An introductory overview of wildfire risk reduction
  • Coaching and support for your “wildfire committee” 
  • Contributions to monthly or bi-monthly meetings
  • Online and print resources to help you understand risk mitigation
  • Networking with other California Fire Safe Councils
  • Developing a hybrid of becoming both Firewise and Fire Safe Council approved

If you have questions, or wish to organize a presentation that covers the "Los Angeles Wildfire Alliance" and how both the California Fire Safe Council and/or the NFPA Firewise USA initiative can be valuable, please contact us.
