Located in Northern California just 5 miles east of Paradise and 15 miles from Oroville in Butte County, Concow/Yankee Hill community is home to over 3,000 residents. Yankee Hill Fire Safe Council serves the communities of Yankee Hill, Concow, Pulga, Jarbo, Gap and Cherokee. Concow/Yankee Hill became a Firewise community in 2009, and has since been committed to keeping its residents Firewise-safe by providing timely information and hands-on opportunities in an effort to reduce the risk of a wildfire threat in their area.
Even before their inception into the Firewise Communities Program , the Council had championed its “Dooryard Educational Visits,” in which qualified Council members visit communities in teams and provide residents with a home and property evaluation to help them create defensible zones, review home construction and bring awareness to wildfire preparedness practices.
