The Coastal Canyon Fire Safe Council's mission is to increase awareness, further prevention, and facilitate collaboration between government agencies, officials, and organizations to improve fire protection of life, property and open space/wildlife within the communities of Southwest Central San Diego.
WHAT IS A FIRE SAFE COUNCIL?
Your partner in fire safety and education.
We are here as members of the community to bridge the gap between the fire and safety infrastructure of Clairemont and its residents. We are here to ensure that we get proper training, equipment, and staffing for our fire stations so they can be equal to the increases in density that our community is receiving. We will do this by educating our citizens and public servants, reducing our canyon fuel with defensible space zones, finding funding for our stations, supporting our stations in their training.

APPS AND SITES
EDUCATION IS KEY... KNOW HOW TO PREVENT FIRE DAMAGE AND HOW TO RECOVER FROM IT IF IT DOES HAPPEN.
We will be increasing our webinar and workshop schedule once the community guidelines allow. We will be hosting a virtual education event leading up to our May 15th event for defensible space and yard clean up...
FIRE-SAFE YOUR PLACE!
DEFENSIBLE SPACE AND NO-COST CHIPPING PROGRAM.
A great way to reduce the burnable fuel in your yard. Once the county clears us for more in person events we will be adding chipping programs. FREE CHIPPING AND DUMPING AT OUR FIRE SAFE YOUR PLACE EVENT ON MAY 15th!

DRESSING FOR SUCCESS
Evacuations are a stressful time, but being prepared will keep you safe. You should have a GO bag that has pre-selected clothing and supplies for your evacuation. The clothing you wear could be the difference of you making it out alive.
When preparing to evacuate, dress yourself and family in clothes that will shield from heat, embers and flames. Natural fabrics, such as heavy denim or pure wool are better than synthetics, no matter how hot it is. Keep these items near your “Go Kit” during fire season:
Sturdy leather boots with Vibram-lug soles
Long pants (wool or cotton) with sturdy belt
Floppy cotton hat
Handkerchief or bandana to cover face
Long sleeved shirt that covers neck (tuck into pants)
Leather work gloves
Put these clothes on at the first sign of trouble. If you can smell or see smoke, it is time to put on your evacuation clothes and prepare to leave.
This isn't about fashion, it is about function!
