The Diablo Fire Safe Council was founded in 1998 as a nonprofit
coalition of public and private agencies whose mission it is to
preserve and enhance the natural and man-made resources of Alameda and
Contra Costa Counties by mobilizing all East Bay residents to make
their homes, neighborhoods and communities fire-safe. As a 501 (C)(3)
non-profit organization, it can serve as a fiscal sponsor for all
types of fire safety projects, at the neighborhood and community
levels. Successful projects completed include Mallory Ridge, Four
Corners, Chabot Canyon, Mini-Grants to Community Partners, and Media
and Firewise Communities Workshops.
This is an excellent meeting to learn about vegetation management and
fire safety, and to meet other community leaders interested in the
same subject-matter, and to learn about resources that are available
to help make our communities more fire-safe.
