Kensington Fire Safe Council is an IRS approved 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.

Bev Barrett established the first Fire Safe Council in Kensington in 2013 modeled on one in the neighborhood to our east, Talmadge. Her inspiration was the memory of her grandfather’s mountain cabins in rural San Diego County destroyed by a wildfire and how devastated he was by the loss. Bev first established one small Kensington Fire Safe Council comprised of approximately 200 homes.

Kensington Fire Safe Council now extends to cover approximately 800 homes. See our boundary map below.
