Welcome to our webpage!  The Lakehills Fire Safe Council, a non-profit corporation, is an associate council within the El Dorado County Fire Safe Council.  Serving the North Peninsula area of El Dorado Hills, CA, the all-volunteer Lakehills Fire Safe Council works to provide a common voice and community effort toward protecting against wildland fires in our area. This is accomplished through a combination of volunteer hours, agency partnerships, community education and obtaining funding to pay for reduction of local vegetation loads.


Our History

  • A volunteer group of neighbors formed the Lakehills Fire Safe Council in July, 2012 following a June 9, 2012, Multi-Agency Disaster Drill and Evacuation Exercise held in Lakehills Estates. In 2013 Lakehills Estates earned the designation as a Firewise community. In 2014, the villages of Southpointe and Lakeridge Oaks joined the council and also became Firewise communities.

Today’s Mission

  • Reduce the risk of loss of life and property due to wildfire within the North Peninsula area of El Dorado Hills. This is accomplished through a combination of volunteer hours, agency partnerships, community education and action, along with obtaining grants to fund reduction of local fire vegetation loads.
