California Fire Safe Council Rolls Out Wildfire Toolkit and Trailer Program

California Fire Safe Council (CFSC) has partnered with Listos California, Gov. Gavin Newsom's emergency preparedness initiative, to roll out a Wildfire Preparedness Toolkit and Trailer Program across California.  In tandem with Wildfire Preparedness Week, the program will provide education and assistance to high-risk fire communities across the state.

The program will allocate tools to organize and create wildfire evacuation plans, defensible spaces, community fuel breaks and home hardening plans. CFSC and Listos California have collaborated to create custom trailers and toolkits in an effort to reach vulnerable communities through projects and education with Listos California Disaster Ready Guides.

Funded by grants, 13 custom-built trailers and 42 toolkits have been awarded to local community partners such as Fire Safe Councils, fire prevention agencies and nonprofits in numerous California regions. Through a partnership with Advanced Logistics and California Conservation Corps, each trailer is custom-built to accommodate tools, safety equipment and $10,000 in critical supplies for wildfire prevention and mitigation.

“Our new Listos California Trailer and Toolkit Program will impact the most at-risk residents through education and tangible community projects on the ground. These projects support the implementation of fuel-reduction programs such as community chipper programs, fuel breaks, and roadside and defensible space projects,” said Hedi Jalon, executive director of CFSC. “We are encouraging residents to get prepared now with fire adapted communities because wildfire is an inevitable and increasingly worsening reality for Californians.”
