Take Action Program

As the result of a Grant from Yuba Water Agency, Yuba Watershed Protection & Fire Safe Council is soliciting proposals from Yuba County foothill youth groups who are interested in designing and implementing Community wildfire mitigation projects.

These grant funds are for local projects that are modeled after those included in the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Take Action- Teens for Wildfire Safe Communities program.

This program is designed to get teens involved in the process of preparing communities to be better prepared for a wildfire event.  Teen “Actions” can include:

  • Preparing pet evacuation kits
  • Taking wildfire “virtual field trips”
  • Wildfire Risk Reduction Community Service Projects
  • Serving as change agents in wildfire preparedness.
