Keep Our Community Safe from Wildfires

The Meadows Firesafe Council is a non-profit, local volunteer organization established in 2006. We are dedicated to making The Meadows and Chaney Trail safer from catastrophic wildfire through community resources and education. 

Ready-Set-Go Personal Wildfire Plan

The best plan for protecting our neighborhood starts with you.

You can dramatically increase your safety and the survivability of your property by preparing well in advance of a wildfire. Our easy-to-follow guide provides comprehensive information on how to improve your home’s resistance to wildfires and prepare your family to be ready to leave early in a safe manner. We call this process, “Ready, Set, Go!”
