EXTENDED UNTIL OCT 8! DONATE A GIFT CARD TO HELP OUR LOCAL FIRE FIGHTERS.
They have been working hard here and up north. Let's give them a meal from a local restaurant to say thanks.
Some of their favorite places are Dino's Greek, Burro & Fries, Bombay, Ralphs, and Smart & Final. Of course, any restaurant is fine, but please try to support our local, family owned businesses if possible.
Please use the contact form to the right or email us (click below) to have your donation picked up.
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).
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.

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.
