The fire safety grant, or CWPP, is wonderful opportunity for all residents within the Mosquito Fire Protection District. All residents, all associations, all groups should take this to heart and work together to ensure a viable safety area in which we all live. The CWPP is still in its 'infancy' as this is written and much more information will be forthcoming and passed on to you. Please consider using this website, as well as the El Dorado County Fire Safe Council's (EDCFSC) site to obtain as much information as possible. Please bookmark this page and this one EDCFSC.

Directly below are three contact boxes. Each contact box has been set up for a particular purpose. Please ensure you provide your name, address, phone number, and email address in the message box.
The first is for those who wish to be trained by CalFire to evaluate properties for defensible space. This training will assist property owners to determine their best course of action to make their properties more fire safe.
The second contact box is for those that can volunteer their time, and any equipment or tools, to help prepare properties for fire safety. Can you operate a chain saw, feed a chipper, remove or cut back a branch, trim a shrub. Whatever you are good at will be a huge assistance to make the fire safety plan come together. Help others and others will help you.
The third contact box is for those that wish to participate but aren't 100% sure as to the who, what, when, and where that may be expected. If you are interested in becoming a defensible space team member and improving your household please use that contact box to begin your process of getting involved. As more folks begin to sign up more information will be provided to you.
You will be notified of date, time, and location of the training session.
As soon as the program swings into action we will notify you and request your assistance.
You shall be contacted as soon as the program begins, which may be late March, early April. We appreciate your patience.
