About Us

In 1987, San Mateo County Fire Chiefs formed a committee to address the potential for serious loss of life and property in Wildland/Urban Interface (WUI) areas that are threatened by wildfire. FIRE SAFE San Mateo County has the distinction of being the first of more than 90 Fire Safe Councils that exist today, more than three years before the California Fire Safe Council began.

FIRE SAFE San Mateo has developed to include a diverse membership of public and private agencies and groups. Our goals are to reduce hazardous vegetation, create defensible space around structures, and educate the public about wildfire fire hazards, fire behavior, and fuel reduction through the guidance of local agencies and public/private partnerships.

Our Mission

The Mission of Fire Safe San Mateo is to maintain the quality of life while protecting property and the environment for citizens living in the wildland/urban-interface zones of San Mateo County through public and private partnerships for education and fuel reduction.
