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).

WHY WE ARE HERE.  WHAT WE CAN DO FOR THE 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 46 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 Meetings

  • Participate in Fire Safe Council Programs and Activities

 

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

  • Full-coverage goggles

  • Long sleeved shirt that covers neck (tuck into pants)

  • Wool socks

  • 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.
