Community Risk Reduction

The Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Division's goal is to build, enhance, and maintain resilient communities across San Diego County. Multiple programs make up the CRR Division: Pre-Fire/Resource Management, the Defensible Space Program, Law Enforcement, Community Engagement and Grants programs, and the County Fire Marshal program.


The CRR Division supports the communities we serve by our involvement with the Fire Safe Council of San Diego County, the Sunrise Powerlink Fire Mitigation Grants Program, various community outreach opportunities, and by promoting local events aimed at creating safe and livable communities. 


SDGE drive thru safety fair


As an alternative to the annual Community Safety Fairs, SDG&E invites you and your family to participate in their drive-thru events where you can receive information about stocking an emergency kit and developing an emergency plan, as well as tips on how to better enable your home to resist a wildfire.

Please note that the event scheduled for Saturday, September 12th at Mountain Empire High School has been cancelled due to the Valley Fire. However, there is still one opportunity remaining on this year's calendar, which is:

Saturday, September 26th from 1000 AM to 1200 PM at Viejas Casino (East End Parking Lot Past the Casino) 5000 Willows Road, Alpine, CA 91901
