The mission of the CVCFSC is to reduce the threat of wild fire to farms, ranches, urban neighborhoods and infrastructure through an aggressive program of action, education and collaboration with local, state, and federal fire protection agencies.


Welcome to our website!  Wildfires are now a year-round reality in southern California.  Fueled by build-ups of dry vegetation and driven by hot, dry winds, they are extremely dangerous and can be almost impossible to control.  We hope that you will find the information presented in the site to be helpful.  


The question is not if a wildfire will occur, but when a wildfire will occur.

In March 2015, The Central Ventura County Fire Safe Council (CVCFSC) received a $22,186. grant from The Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) to fund 10 Chipper Day projects throughout Ventura County.  The CVCFSC is busy planning the projects that are designed to assist neighborhoods in clearing brush on their property.  The first Chipper Day was held September 19, 2015 in the Ventu Park area of Thousand Oaks.  Additional Chipper Days are currently being planned for 2016.  A calendar of events will be posted in December 2015.  


Free Chipping Event- We are happy to provide a free chipping event for the residents of Ventu Park on Saturday, September 19, 2015 from 9am to 3pm.   Pre-registration is required by returning the reservation form above.  Please call 805.402.6092 for more information.  This project is partially funded by a grant from Cal Fire to residents who are within the State Responsibility Area (the unincorporated area of Ventura County within Ventu Park Community).  Reservations must be made by September 17.  Chipping slots are limited and will be assigned based on date and time of receipt of your application .   Thank you.
