Fire protection is the mission of  Santa Clara County Fire Safe Council. A nonprofit that relies on grants and donations to fund its programs, SCCFC has been around since 2002, carrying out its mission to help county residents and homeowners “protect their homes, communities and environment from wildfires,” according to the group’s own site.

The group confines its efforts to Santa Clara County, though it sometimes extends into areas of Santa Cruz County in zip codes that cross the county line. It does not take part in fighting fires, though Fire Safe Council officials count numerous firefighters among their number. The group primarily runs educational programs, such as hazardous fuel reduction workshops and wildfire evacuation instruction.

Current projects involve eucalyptus removal along roads to reduce wildfire risk and severity, and to help keep highways accessible during wildfire, and education on hazardous tree removal and fuel reduction.
