The cost of a single fire - the Corral Canyon fire - was $129.9 million. This includes property loss, damages, suppression, recovery and rebuilding.

It doesn’t have to be this way. We can have a fire prevention and protection system that will cost less than what we pay to fight, recover and rebuild.

A First Fire Defense System for the 50 square mile area of the Santa Monica Mountains and Malibu would cost approximately $80 million.

CFSC's fire prevention and protection plan involves 6 water tanks holding 9.5 million gallons of water (wastewater and saltwater options are being discussed) with water mains and hydrants strategically placed along ridgelines to protect homes and neighborhoods.  With prepositioned fire breaks and water mains, wildfires can be disabled. 

All for less than the cost of a major fire......
