The current chipping program is made possible by a grant from the California Climate Investments
Fire Prevention Grant Program.
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 andHERE.

Another Successful Evacuation Seminar
A senario-based evacuation seminar was held on April 21, 2018 at the Castle Creek Country
Club. More than 40 local residents attended. The presentation was based on factual predicted wildfire behavior for the area and challenged
the residents to think about the various aspects of evacuation and how they might react at various points in the scenario timeline.
Deer Springs Fire Chief Nick Brown and San Diego Sheriff Captain Dave Brown fielded questions from the attendees. Community-focused
seminars have been held, so far, in the Champagne Village, Hidden Meadows and Castle Creek areas with more to come.
