The Scott Valley Fire Safe Council is dedicated to working with all stakeholders to protect the natural beauty and resources located in Scott Valley, California.


Scott Valley Fire Safe Council's objectives are:

~Become a fire safe community
~Identify and treat areas with high fuel loading near residential areas to obtain a lower hazard level.
~Develop and maintain an effective fire defense zone around the residential areas from Forest Mountain to Scott Mountain.
~Promote public awareness and cooperation in implementation of projects.

Scott Valley and Wildfire, a brief history:
Lightning fires are ignited in the watershed every fire season. The fire regime affects vegetative cover, and potential erosion, depending on severity and frequency. As a state and federal policy, fire suppression has been in effect since at least the 1920's. Most fires are contained quickly and held to a few acres. The largest fire of record, in the area, is the Kidder Creek burn of 1955, when 14, 500 acres burned. In 1987, the lower Scott River canyon area had a significant burn of 8,790 acres (Sommarstrom et al., 1990; KNF, 2000).

Recent Projects:
Scott River Watershed Elderly & Disabled Defensible Space Project was completed in March of 2011 and provided 60 acres of defensible space for 30 residents in need in Scott Valley.
