The Yuba Watershed Protection and Fire Safe Council is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) community-based group consisting of concerned citizens, local, state and federal fire professionals, law enforcement, professional foresters, local timber companies and resource conservation groups along with county government

Working Together Towards the Following:

Protect Property and Lives

Maintain Yuba County Forest Health

Prevent Wildfire Where Possible

Minimize Effects of Wild Fire

Prepare for Any Emergency!

Floods and fires are very real possibilities for anyone living in Yuba County. The past few years have shown us that devastating wildfires pose a very real threat to our communities. Our foothill communities are particularly vulnerable to the ravages of wind-driven fires.
