Mt. Pinos Communities Fire Safe Council

The Mt. Pinos Communities Fire Safe Council is a community fire organization serving thecommunities of Lebec, Los Padres Estates, Frazier Park, Gorman, Lake of the Woods, Cuddy Valley, Pinion Pines, Lockwood Valley, Pine Mountain Club, and Camp Shydeck. The mission of the Mt. Pinos Communities Fire Safe Council is to safeguard the people of our communities and their property from the effects of catastrophic wildfire through education, cooperation, innovation, and action.

Just what does a Fire Safe Council do?

A Fire Safe Council is a community group comprised of homeowners, renters, agencies and industry – basically, anyone has a “stake” in wildfire issues. Our goal is to help provide everyone living on the mountain with the tools necessary to prepare their homes and families for wildfire and to implement fuel reduction projects throughout our communities. Working together, we act to protect community members and property from wildfire.

We do this through both community-wide events such as elementary school poster contests and local events like chipper days. We also are working on fuel reduction projects in multiple communities around southwestern Kern County. Our work is made possible through substantial support from agency partners, including: Kern County Fire Department, the U.S. Forest Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and Cal Fire, who attend many of our meetings and provide input into the development and execution of fire safe council projects throughout our communities.
