We are now the Ventura Regional Fire Safe Council!
Starting in 2021, Central Ventura County Fire Safe Council (CVCFSC) is now named
Ventura Regional Fire Safe Council (VRFSC). We are in the process of updating our
website and we will post what our new website domain will be soon!
NEW PROGRAMS FOR 2021
Update the Community Wildfire Protection Plan to provide a roadmap of actions for communities to address the wildfire threat. It will prioritize fuel reduction activities and recommend measures to reduce the ignitability of structures.
Reducing Wildfire Risks in Piru will work with vulnerable homeowners and residents to become more fire resilient, safer, and better prepared to withstand wildfire through fuel abatement work, chipper days, Home Ignition Zone training and assessments, and outreach to vulnerable populations.
The Greater Conejo Valley Area will become more fire resilient, safer, and better prepared to withstand the threat of wildfire through multiple projects including HIZ training and assessments, chipper events, and virtual webinars on wildfire preparedness.
Navigating Through COVID-19
“The Central Ventura County Fire Safe Council is committed to caring for the health and well-being of our partners and playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders. As we all know, the situation with COVID-19 is extremely dynamic and we will continue to review the facts and science and make the proactive decisions to help protect our partners and communities.
For now, we have canceled all our meetings and training programs in April, including the Hired Vendor Training workshop, and the community meetings in Fillmore, Ventura and Moorpark. We will reschedule them as soon as we can. We are also evaluating future projects and will move forward as the situation allows. We appreciate your understanding as we navigate through this time together.
It is our intent to remain transparent to our unwavering Mission and resume our programs and activities as soon as it is safe to do so. We’ll keep you posted via our website.”
Mike LaPlant, Board President, March 17, 2020
The Fire Safe Council was able to provide over 100 N95 masks to first response organizations, primarily through the Ventura County Community Foundation and other organizations. While not a large number, we know that everything helps. We encourage anyone with similar items to do the same as soon as possible.
