We hope you are all remaining healthy and safe. Santa Clara County FireSafe Council is now operating remotely from our staff’s network of home offices. All our personnel are connected and able to continue many tasks. We recognize that fire season and fire safety won’t wait for us to get back to our pre-corona virus normal so here is what we can still do now.
Will Community Chipping continue?
Yes, vegetation management for fire safety is currently recognized as an essential service by both the state and county health orders. SCCFSC expects our chipping program to proceed on schedule. Of course, another mandate may change that status and we will comply with all new orders. You may still submit chipping applications through the website on the chipping page.
Updates will appear on the chipping schedule page of our website.
Can I still request a workshop or education event?
Yes, you may submit a request through the forms on our website; however, no date confirmations can be given at this time. April events and some May events have been cancelled. We are complying with the County mandates regarding no gatherings for the shelter in place order.
Can I schedule a Home Ignition Zone inspection (HIZ)?
We are continuing to accept requests for HIZ inspections but dates will not be scheduled until further notice.
Is SCCFSC going to do video workshops?
These are currently being developed.
