The Fire Safe Council is a separate entity form the POA. For questions and more information, please call (707) 888-9331 or email GoldRidgeForestFSC@yahoo.com
Our mission is to make our community fire safe through roadside vegetation management, greenbelt clearing, through Grant funding, special programs for our residents and volunteer services. We are also here to educate and encourage our neighbors to contribute by clearing their own defensible space and making sure they have evacuation plans that will work best for them. It is this council's promise to seek grant funding in order to complete the above and more.
If you have any questions or need assistance with the chipping program form or the defensible space ordinance inspections coming this summer, feel free to email GoldRidgeForestFSC@yahoo.com or call (707) 888-9331.
