Fire Safe Council


The Humboldt County Board of Supervisors (BOS) formed the Humboldt County Fire Safe Council (FSC) in 2002. Every two years, the BOS passes a resolution to renew the FSC in recognition of the belief that community-based fire planning efforts assist residents in making their homes, neighborhoods, and communities fire safe.The members of the BOS continue to support the FSC so that it may oversee the maintenance and implementation of the Humboldt County Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) and, when appropriate, to inform and make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors.

Mission Statement
The mission of the FSC is to:
  • Serve as a forum for the implementation of the measures outlined in the CWPP
  • Share fire-safety information
  • Assess fire risk
  • Promote community fire-safe planning and coordination
  • Link fire-prevention programs
  • Support the fire service and local FSCs
