Fire Safe Sonoma

Fire Safe Sonoma is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation formed in 1998. Over the past two decades, Fire Safe Sonoma has been instrumental in helping to educate residents about wildfire prevention and safety, taking on large scale fuels reduction projects, and creating the first chipper program in the county.

Fire Safe Sonoma created Sonoma County’s first countywide Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP), in addition to being the creators of several local CWPPs.

Fire Safe Sonoma also routinely acts as a liaison between local communities and agencies, and is constantly seeking grant funding for wildfire safety related projects.
