HAMMOND RANCH FIRE SAFE COUNCIL

 MISSION -- The mission of the Hammond Ranch Fire Safe Council (HRFSC) is to reduce the risk of wildfire in the Hammond Ranch Fire District.  The HRFSC is a volunteer organization dedicated to making the community safer by planning, education and wildfire fuel reduction.

 PLANNING -- Wildfire safety begins with development of a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP).  The HRFSC works with landowners, the Hammond Ranch Volunteer Fire Company, Hammond Ranch Land Owners Association (HLA), CalFire, US Forest Service and other interested parties to create a wildfire protection plan.  The plan includes a prioritized list of wildfire fuel reduction projects. 
 

wildfire education for landowners

 EDUCATION -- Wildfire safety begins with the landowners.  Working with fire agencies, the HRFSC is in the process of developing an educational program that will teach the methods of effective wildfire protection.  

wildfire fuel reduction Grant

 The HRFSC has assessed, identified and submitted projects for wildfire fuel reduction.  The projects will be accomplished by landowners or contractors hired under a grant program.  The HRFSC will emphasize the importance of landowner participation as the primary method to improve wildfire safety.
