The Butte County Fire Safe Council is to offering its community members an educational presentation titled, “Why become a recognized Firewise Community.” Neighborhoods, subdivisions, and small towns in the foothills of Butte County are at risk to wildfire. The Firewise Communities/USA Recognition Program is a national program which helps communities address wildfire hazards. Hundreds of communities throughout the United States have achieved Firewise Recognition. Locally the Yankee Hill Fire Safe Council has maintained Firewise status for the past two years. The Butte County Fire Safe Council invites people to come learn more about the program during an hour long presentation with Faith Berry (Firewise Regional Advisor) at the upcoming Butte County Fire Safe Council Board meeting.
The meeting will be held at the Town of Paradise Town Hall on Wednesday March 7th from 11:00-12:00pm.
The Butte County Fire Safe Council’s mission is to “provide wildfire safety in Butte County through education and hazard mitigation”. The Council is a non-profit, public benefit corporation which formed in March of 1998 through community and agency collaboration.
