The Upper Jacoby Creek neighborhood is located in the forested, rural area southeast of the City of Arcata, in between Fickle Hill Road and the Freshwater community.
The Upper Jacoby Creek firewise community includes approximately 200 households situated along Jacoby Creek Road and an additional 33 households on Garden and Glory Lanes. This community is outside the boundaries of any fire protection district, so they rely on emergency response from CAL FIRE
in Trinidad, or “goodwill response” from Arcata.
Due to the remoteness of the Upper Jacoby Creek neighborhood, response times from either of these agencies are somewhat lengthy.
