SRFSC Honorary Member

The Scripps Ranch Fire Safe Council has a new honorary member, California State Assembly Member Brian Maienschein.
In 2003 and 2007, wildfires swept through his district, including Scripps Ranch devastating homes and businesses. Maienschein walked the burned-out neighborhood streets himself before constituents were allowed to return, developing a list of homes and businesses that had been destroyed. In response to the fires, Maienschein created a one-stop disaster hub for victims to support and streamline rebuilding efforts, bringing together the all the government agencies and services for those impacted by fires. The plan and programs Maienschein created are still national models for disaster response. We're proud to appoint him as an honorary member of The Council and we thank him for his great work in protecting Scripps Ranch.
