Fire Safe Council Hosts Community Information Session

From FSC vice president Diane Ahern: The UC Fire Safe Council thanks representatives of the San Diego Fire Department who helped UCFSC volunteers Lou Rodolico and Tom Cartier share information on home hardening and open space canyon brush management during a public presentation on March 23.

The Fire Safe Council also thanks the University Community Library and financial sponsors The San Diego Regional Fire Foundation, SDG&E, The San Diego Regional Disaster Fund, and the San Diego County Fire Safe Council.

Audience members asked questions about fire behavior, reporting code compliance issues, home and fire insurance, and high fire hazard safety zones. Those in attendance were able to receive free smoke detectors, with about 30 given away. Attendees were particularly fascinated by the maps comparing the year-to-year vegetation management in Rose Canyon. Due to the positive response, another community information session and giveaway is planned for later in the year.
