I became involved in the Santa Clara County FireSafe Council several years ago to help prevent wildfires in the Alum Rock Park area near our home. Later, as I became involved in more county-wide activities of the council, I was elected Treasurer and a member of the Board of Directors. The Santa Clara County FireSafe Council is funded by federal grants and by contributions from companies, foundations, organizations and individuals who are interested in prevention wildfires. Thanks to these collaborative efforts, SCFSC has made significant progress in protecting homes and communities from wildfires. Our mission is Mobilizing the people of Santa Clara County to protect their homes, communities and environment from wildfires. We do Community Outreach and Education and provide free Chipping Programs to help people create and maintain Defensible Space around their homes and communities. You can help us by volunteering for community events or by contributing to or helping organize chipping projects. See www.SCCFireSafe.org for more on our council. It is a good way to learn more about wildfire prevention and help protect your home and community.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
working with firefighters and others throughout Santa Clara County to help prevent wildfires.
Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
