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. Soon after, the area served by the council expanded to include the entire North Peninsula area of El Dorado Hills, defined as the area north of Green Valley Road, in El Dorado Hills, CA.

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.
