Helping Citizens Help Themselves
The San Benito Fire Safe Council is a local organization with members of fire agencies, county agencies, private corporations and private citizens working towards helping San Benito County residents be more resilient to wildfire. We are grateful to the Community Foundation for San Benito County for serving as our fiscal sponsor.
The Department of Forestry and Fire Protection serves and safeguards the people and protects the property and resources of California.
Newly expanded Hollister Fire Department is excited to be currently ushering in another milestone. While we have always stood ready to protect our community, early in 2013 we expanded our organization to provide fire protection services for two additional municipalities. We are welcoming San Benito County and the nearby city of San Juan Bautista under our umbrella.
