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 the Central Ventura County Fire Safe Council website.  We are a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the threat of wildfire in Ventura County.  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.  


Please see below for a list of our most recent workshops and Chipper Days.
