AREAS SERVED: Branciforte Fire serves approximately 3,500 residents. It is located within the Wildland/Urban interface with homes in highly wooded and hilly areas. There are several vineyards, orchards and farms. Within the District there is an elementary school, a conference center, and a tourist location called The Mystery Spot.
Programs:The Branciforte Fire Department is a member of the county wide chipping program, which provides free chipping services to residents who maintain rural roads and fuel loading on their property. The State law requires that all homeowners maintain a 100 foot defensible space perimeter around their residence. This means removing dead and flammable vegetation, pruning low hanging tree branches and keeping plants spaced apart so they do not act as a continuous fuel source leading right to your house.
