Our Mission

Sierra County Fire Safe and Watershed Council ("Fire Safe Sierra County") is a non-profit organization serving the residents of Sierra County, California. Our primary purpose is to seek funding and organize projects with the following goals:

  • To help protect our residents, community, and natural resources from a wildfire.

  • To foster and assist Sierra County Firewise communities in their mission, reducing wildfire risk to homes and properties. 

  • To empower landowners and residents to care for their homes and properties through hazard fuel removal assistance and community education programs.

  • To partner with other agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service, the Sierra Valley Resource Conservation District, the California Fire Safe Council, the NFPA® Firewise USA® program, CAL FIRE, and other groups and organizations who function to preserve and protect our people, communities, and natural resources.
