Fire Safe Council

The Rancho Bernardo Fire Safe Council is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the greater Rancho Bernardo area a safer place in the event of wildfires.  It was established following the 2007 Witch Creek/Guejito Wildfires, which destroyed over 350 homes in Rancho Bernardo and almost 1,100 homes countywide.  The RB Fire Safe Council is a program of RB United, a member of the San Diego County Fire Safe Council, and a collaborative partner of the Lake Hodges Fire Safe Council.

 

 

Mission:

The mission of the Fire Safe Council of Rancho Bernardo is three-fold: (a) promotion of the preparation and education of the public on wildfire safety, (b) protection and preservation of homes and natural resources from fire damage, and (c) coordination and mobilization of the activities, resources and organizations that mitigate fire risk.

 

Get Involved:

Attend a meeting: The Rancho Bernardo Fire Safe Council meets quarterly, the second Tuesday of each month, location rotates.  Meetings are open to anyone with an interest in Rancho Bernardo fire safety.
