Publications & Information
we have available in print or .pdf
MCSFC has a number of publications available about wildfire prevention, safety, and preparedness, in print and .pdf formats.
If you have dial-up, click HERE to read these as webpages instead of large-size pdf files.
The pdfs are available to read or download from this site - click on the PDF link under the subject you want.
Some of the larger pdf files are also available as webpages without all the illustrations to create reasonable download times for rural
users with slow connections.
Most of our print publications may be obtained by sending a self addressed stamped envelope to MCFSC, PO Box 1488, Ukiah, CA 95482, and stating which publication you want.
Most will fit in a business sized envelope with $0.44 postage, but our Living With Wildfire Brochure is 16 pages and needs a 9x12
envelope with $1.22 postage.
ALL of the .pdf files below will open in new windows.
Close them to exit.
