About the Fire Safe Big Bear Council:

This website []( has been created to provide a variety of useful information that you may need to know if you notice a fire anywhere, especially those that could be classed as a danger to health or life-threatening. Forest fires are a real hazard, and early detection and swift action are the best ways to deal with them. The authorities can only do so much with their limited resources, and they are grateful for any help that observant members of the public can provide. If you spot a fire, especially one off the beaten track, contact one of the emergency numbers listed on this site or call 911 immediately.

By mobilizing the community members who stand to lose the most, Fire Safe Councils create a powerful group initiative that can:

- Minimize risks to life, homes, and natural and human-made resources.

- Increase the insurability of property by increasing community safety.

- Forge strong partnerships with first responders.

- Acquire resources that can assist in fire prevention efforts.

Join us on May 23, 2024, from 6 PM to 8 PM to learn more and contribute to making Big Bear a safer place. Come prepared with your questions and help us build a fire-resilient community.
