During shelter in place, you can actively prepare for the upcoming fire season. Restricted activities to flatten the curve may have you worried about the wildfire challenge that warm dry weather brings. You can reduce your wildfire risk!

SCCFSC wants to remind you that while many wildfire preparation activities can be done safely under Shelter in Place orders, residents should strictly adhere to all county and state guidelines.
