February 4, 2023
Join us on Zoom Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 5 p.m., for Kern Fire Safe Council’s February Webinar HIZ: Home Ignition Zones with Jim Kniss of Team Rubicon. Team Rubicon is a veteran-led humanitarian organization that serves global communities before, during and after disasters.* Questions are welcome.
Your Kern Fire Safe Council, in its ongoing efforts to educate, motivate and support our local communities is holding a virtual webinar. Register to attend the webinar on our website, kernfiresafe.org or call (661) 246-3955.
In previous webinars, KFSC has partnered with California Fire Safe Council to show us all how we can take the 5 Steps for Disaster Preparedness, and Kern County Fire to discuss Emergency Alerts and Holiday Fire Safety and Western Propane to talk about Propane Safety.
February’s Webinar promises to be every bit as informative and vital in helping the residents of Kern County be safe, prepared and resilient in the event of a Wildfire in our local mountains and forests. This is the place to ask the experts your fire safety questions.
What is a Fire Safe Council?
Fire Safe Councils bring together community leaders, governmental agencies and corporations to provide education to the residents of California on the dangers of wildfires and how they could be prevented.
In addition to our Webinars, Kern Fire Safe Council has initiated a Ready, Set, Go School Program in coordination with our partners at Kern County Fire Department and the US Forest Service to educate 4th and 5th graders in the county about disaster preparedness and wildfire behavior.
About your Kern Fire Safe Council...
Since January 2020, Kern Fire Safe Council, with help through grant funding from California Fire Safe Council, Southern California Edison, Listos CA and California Fire Foundation, has successfully partnered with Kern County Fire Department to consolidate three dormant fire safe councils located in Kern County into one county-wide Council. Kern Fire Safe Council has attracted and elected a Board of Directors with backgrounds in firefighting, education, utilities, and management. KFSC currently partners with Kern County Fire Department, United States Forest Service, Southern California Edison, Western Propane, Mountain Radio Inc., and several schools located in the Wildland Urban Interface communities of Kern County.
Your KFSC brings together community leaders, governmental agencies, and corporations to provide education to the residents of California on the dangers of wildfires and how they could be prevented. We hope to expand, build and develop relationships with organizations, agencies and elected officials from the county, state and federal levels that share our mission so that we can increase community awareness, and develop community outreach and school programs.
