Together we can make all of Nevada County fire safe! Nevada County Firewise Communities/USA®!
Working together, residents can make their own property — and their entire neighborhood — much safer from wildfire. The Fire Safe Council of Nevada County has been assisting individual neighborhoods in completing the National Fire Protection Association’s Firewise Communities/USA® certification process for over 10 years.
It begins with a few concerned citizens who form a committee. Next, a community wildfire hazard assessment is conducted in collaboration with a Registered Professional Forester, your local fire department and CAL FIRE.
