I work as a Wildland Fire Specialist for the Montecito Fire Department in southern Santa Barbara County. I also serve on the Board for the Santa Barbara Fire Safe Council and am a Fire Behavior Analyst for California Incident Management Team 15. I work with residents and local stakeholders to plan and implement wildland fire mitigation actions. These include Community Wildfire Protection Plans and Pre-Attack Suppression Plans. I also meet with District residents to consult them on local fire ordinance, assess wildfire risks to their specific properties, and offer recommendations on best actions to mitigate those risks.

Santa Barbara Fire Safe Council

The Santa Barbara Fire Safe Council provides educational opportunities to assist the community to prepare for the next wildfire.
