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
WHO WE SERVE...
We serve the general area of Clairemont, Linda Vista and Bay Park. We have used the fire breaks of highway and large roads as our boundaries. 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).
Our Fire Stations
The Coastal Canyon has 4 fire stations in our area and an additional in our future. We hope to work with the stations, city, county, and state to improve our stations and their ability to protect our citizens.
This maps show the large fire burn history, although everyone of our canyons has experienced small fires that could have become a conflagration if not caught early. The excessive fuel, increase in temperatures, and decrease in rain is increasing the chances of large fires in our canyons.
Wildlife Urban Interface
A wildland–urban interface (WUI) is a zone of transition between wildland(unoccupied land) and human development. Communities in the WUI are at risk of catastrophic wildfire and their presence disrupts the ecology. We are finding out more about WUI and if we have additional areas that should be considered WUI within our boundaries.
