Big Santa Anita Fire Safe Council was established in 2005 as a 501(c)(3) member of the Fire Safe Council parent organization to educate the cabin owners of Big Santa Anita Canyon on fire safety and facilitate fuels removal. Management of the council was passed to Friends of the San Gabriels in 2012.
Past accomplishments of the council include brush clearing along trails and roads, chipping and removal debris, installing public fire tools (rakes, shovels and pails) at the campgrounds, and the installation of a solar-powered radio repeater for volunteer fire safe patrols.
Friends of the San Gabriels has sponsored volunteer work parties, and we plan to conduct various fundraisers to hire professional fuels reduction crews. It is essential to the preservation of living San Gabriel Mountain history that the remaining camps and cabins are protected from wildfire.
