Welcome

Welcome to the Mendocino County Fire Safe Council. Our mission is to help the citizens of Mendocino County survive and thrive in a fire-prone environment.

Look through our resources—you’ll find lots of information about preparing defensible space around your home, hardening your home to resist fire, and to help you and your neighbors develop a neighborhood Fire Safe Council.

Since 2004, your Fire Safe Council has been working helping people, property, and resources survive and thrive in a fire-prone wild land environment.

We aren’t funded for a chipping program this year, but contact us for assistance and information to help you and your prepare for fire.

The Mendocino County Fire Safe Council encourages all interested persons to become Members (dues are $30/year or $50 for two years) and to participate in its work! Join HERE
