The Central Ventura County Fire Safe Council was formed by a group of farmers, ranchers, and property owners, and recognized by the IRS as a 501c3 non-profit organization in September, 2010.
We have a eight member Board of Directors with representation from ranchers, farmers, a land conservancy, the insurance industry, a civil engineer and an environmental planner.
Our Advisory Board consists of representatives from Cal Fire, Ventura County Fire Department and other local fire agencies; Ventura County Sheriff’s Department, and an attorney.
