Del Norte Fire Safe Council

Our mission is to foster a fire-resilient community in Del Norte County by developing a sustainable workforce focused on wildfire education, collaboration, and adaptive strategies. We aim to help residents not only protect themselves, their homes, businesses, and properties but also to thrive in the realities of living with wildfire. Through strong partnerships with agencies, organizations, tribes, and local communities, we are committed to creating a landscape where our county can live and thrive with wildfire.

Where We Work

The Del Norte Fire Safe Council serves all of Del Norte County.  We cover the land from the high Siskiyou Mountains to the Coastal Redwoods.

We work with private landowners and agencies to try and maximize the effectiveness of wildfire prevention projects in all areas of Del Norte.

What We Do

We strive to protect Del Norte County residents from wildfires. We provide education, training, and boots on the ground to help Del Norte County prepare for catastrophic wildfires.

Raising and efficiently using Federal, State, and local dollars, the Del Norte Fire Safe Council strives to prevent loss of life and property and preserve our beautiful landscape.

We provide the tools and people to help residents protect themselves while collaborating with other agencies, organizations, and tribes.

This includes home assessments, defensible space, strategically placed fuel breaks, prescribed burning, and training.
