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.  


We are currently accepting proposals for a Project Manager to manage seventeen local chipper projects and a Community Liaison to work on developing and implementing a community outreach plan. Proposals are due May 5, 2017 at 5pm.   Please see the attached Request for Qualifications for details.  Click on the link below.    Thank you.

Chipper Days- In March 2015, The Central Ventura County Fire Safe Council (CVCFSC) received a $22,186. grant from The Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) to fund 10 Chipper Day projects throughout Ventura County.  The CVCFSC is busy planning the projects that are designed to assist neighborhoods in clearing brush on their property.
