Crystal RangeThe Logtown Fire Safe Council area includes a diverse community of more than 600 parcels ranging from two-acre subdivision lots to 10+ acreage and large ranches.  We have dirt roads, graveled roads, and paved roads. There are private roads, county roads, roads maintained by a Community Service District (Golden West CSD.) and a State highway running through the middle of it. The terrain consists of open ridge tops with views of the Sierra Nevada Range to the east to secluded, timbered canyons.

Our location in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills and the diverse terrain and roadways present us with challenges when it comes to fire safety. The wildland fire hazard ratings for the Logtown area range from moderate to very high. You are living in what is known as a Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) area.

Ore FireThe Logtown Fire Safe Council was born in July 2006 after a wildfire started by an accident on Highway 49 destroyed two houses and threatened many more. Since that time we have improved our community’s resistance to wildfire through education, creation of defensible space, and cooperation with local fire and road agencies. We offer free chipping services and green waste dumpsters through the El Dorado County Fire Safe Council, and have completed a major grant funded, fuel reduction project around the perimeter of the community and along an evacuation route.

Local phone trees originally organized to give people a “heads up” when there is a fire in our area or when the fire danger is high have been replace by the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services Alert and Warning System.

One of our first orders of business was to develop the Logtown Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). This plan describes and prioritizes the fuel reduction projects in and around Logtown designed to improve our resistance to wildfire intrusion and spread into the community.

The Logtown Fire Safe Council operates as a satellite of the El Dorado County Fire Safe Council, a non-profit public benefit corporation.

  • Resident Firewise Investment Sheet – The Firewise program empowers residents with a wildfire risk to work collaboratively with neighbors to take important proactive steps to protect their homes against the threat of wildfire.  All efforts are recorded whether work was done by the homeowner or paid assistance.  Each investment sheet turned in helps meets our goal for the next Firewise certification.  There are various Activities that count toward investment totals. Turn in your monthly investment sheets at one of our meetings or email them to Pat Dwyer.
  • NEW REQUIREMENT:  For Logtown to maintain in good standing for a Firewise Certification, a trained Fire Safe Council representative(s) shall perform 10 home assessments each month. Participating in an assessment is an opportunity for residents to contribute to Logtown’s certification status and benefit from the expertise of a trained evaluator. There is no fee for the assessment. Documentation will be provided to the resident as suggestions and recommendations to gain compliance with County Codes.  Are you interested in getting certified to perform assessments? Defensible Space Assessor training is planned for either April 5-6 or April 19-20, 2024.  To request a defensible space/wildfire readiness assessment or information on training to become an assessor for the Logtown FSC, send your request to FSCLogtown@gmail.com.
