ARTICLE- Reducing Risk, Raising Resiliency: The Firewise USA program aims to help neighborhoods prepare for and withstand wildfires

“This is the best kind of public safety right here. Neighbors coming together, being interested and engaged, neighbors helping neighbors,” Ayub said. “We’re in an area that’s prone to natural disaster and so I’m very supportive of this type of grassroots effort. And I really hope it gains traction and is a fixture in this community and is an example for other neighborhoods throughout the city and region.”

-Ventura City Manager Bill Ayub

Give Back for a Bigger Impact

Please consider a contribution to our organization so that we can continue providing free services to the community and prepare as much of Ventura County as possible for impending wildfire. We are not safe until all of our communities and neighborhoods are safe. There are many homeowners and communities in Ventura County who simply cannot afford to do the work themselves; it is crucial for all of us to be able to help those less fortunate. Your support will allow us to continue providing free assessments, chipping services, brush clearance, educational workshops, and so much more. We do not take this responsibility lightly and thank you for entrusting us with your support.

VRFSC is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization and your contribution is tax deductible.
