Staff Report

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department is excited to announce the launch of its newly redesigned website: Over the course of the last six months, the department has been working with local web designer Ameravant Web Design to create and develop a website that is not only educational to the public, but also provides residents with vital, up-to-date information during times of emergencies and disasters. 

The website has been designed for easy navigation and an emphasis on wildland fire awareness and preparation. In addition, the website will keep residents, business owners, property owners and visitors informed of current news, project development standards, emergency operations and services available to the public 

The redesigned website was, in part, made possible through a grant with the California Fire Foundation. ADA compliance, translation capabilities and hosting security were all priorities during the design and are integrated within the new site to ensure the site is accessible to the diverse population we serve. 

Members of the public are encouraged to visit the new site to learn more about the organization and how County Fire serves and safeguards the local community.
