Wildfires are a growing concern in California and are most often started by humans, igniting from roads or other urban wildland interface areas. These wildfires spread quickly and can damage acres of land at a time. Through a collaborative partnership with Irvine Ranch Conservancy, OC Parks, City of Irvine, City of Newport Beach and Orange County Fire Authority, the Orange County Fire Watch program calls on volunteers to help watch for accidental or intentional fire ignitions.
The Fire Watch volunteers are instrumental to the prevention of wildfires throughout Orange County and can always use additional support as they prepare for another fire season.
