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.
WHO WE SERVE...
We serve the general area of Clairemont, but due to geography of canyons we felt the need cover the shown area in order make effective firebreaks. Our area include the following stations: Station 23(Comstock-Linda Vista), Station 25 (Chicago-Bay Park), Station 27(Clairemont-Town Square), and Station 36(Chateau-Balboa).
GET FIRE READY!
If you live on or near a canyon, your home needs to be fire SAFE! We can help.
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.
WHY WE ARE HERE. WHAT WE DO FOR YOUR COMMUNITY.
The CCFSC falls under the umbrella of the Fire Safe Council of San Diego formed in 1997. They are a member of the California Fire Safe Council and act as the umbrella organization for the 48 locally-formed community Fire Safe Councils within San Diego County. There are more community fire safe councils in San Diego County than in any other county in California, and we are pleased to be a part of these invaluable resources for fire safety and education.
All Fire Safe Council members have the following common goals:
Promote Fire Safety Education
Encourage Pre-Fire Management
Attend other community group meetings to increase collaboration
Participate in Fire Safe Council Programs and Activities
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 in May 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.

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!
