Defensible zones for home from Cal Fire

NOW IS THE TIME...

… to work on hardening the exterior of your structures and creating defensible space around your home, outbuildings and businesses.

Learn more directly from Cal Fire on how to do this. And if you need assistance, please contact us! 3riversfsc@gmail.com or call us at 559-561-4154

Mailbox with Blue Reflective Address sign

BE SURE TO BE FOUND...

…in ANY emergency, first responders can’t help you if they can’t find you! Order a blue, reflective address marker for your property for only $25! Vertical or horizontal, 1 or 2 sided! Same price!

Address markers are made locally by volunteers as a fundraiser for the Three Rivers Fire Safe Council and are tax deductible!

Click HERE for an order form, or call for details: (559) 561-4154

AFTER THE HEAVY RAINS...

…means it’s time to clean up before the dry season arrives!

Heavy rain impacts debris buildup and spring growth, so while rain may greatly reduce the threat of wildfires, it also promotes the growth of fuel load so defensible space this coming fire season will be as important as ever! 

Do you have flood damage? Please visit  www.tularecounty.ca.gov/emergencies to get help from Tulare County. The Fire Safe Council has resources to help once the rain subsides as well. Be sure to take photos and document all the damage.
