2018 Annual Meeting
The DSFSC 2018 Annual Meeting was held on Saturday February 10, 2018. In addition to the normal
business meeting, Deer Springs Fire District Fire Chief Nick Brown, who was Operations Chief for the Lilac Fire, made a special
presentation covering what has been learned from that recent fire. One of the take-home lessons was that defensible space is not always
enough to save your home. Please see the latest Fire Safety News
Large Animal Group Formed
This meeting also announced
the formation of the DSFSC Large Animal Group. The group was in the formative stages before the Lilac Fire and that fire clearly
demonstrated the need for education and action among large animal owners. Their mission is to "educate and inform large animal
owners so they can make informed decisions and increase their chances of survival in the event of a wildfire." Click on the
"Large Animal Owners" button at the left to learn more about this group.

YOU CUT IT, WE WILL CHIP IT
The current chipping program is made possible by the Cooperative Fire Program of the US Bureau of
Land Management, Department of the Interior, which provided a grant through the California Fire Safe Council.
It has never
been more important that you clear and maintain your defensible space around your home. We will make it easier for you. Examples of
two chipping operations and the creation of defensible space may be found HERE and HERE.
