PREPARING FOR FIRE

Since 2004, your Fire Safe Council has been helping people reduce fire risk, minimize damage, and speed up recovery. We provide resources so that we can all survive and thrive in a fire-prone wildland environment.

REFLective Address SIGNs

 Make sure your address is easy to find and locate in an emergency. Through our Reflect to Protect program, MCFSC provides reflective address signs for your home. When seconds count, these signs help insure first responders stay oriented and find your location.

ORganize YOUR OWN FIRE SAFE COUNCIL

You and your neighbors are the only experts on your particular community’s strengths, priorities and vulnerabilities in the face of fire. Neighborhood Fire Safe Councils are powerful tools for collective action in wildfire planning, preparation, and education. 

Home Hardening

Homes ignite from contact with flames or embers.  Flying embers can destroy homes up to a mile ahead of a wildfire.  Homeowners should “harden” their homes long before a fire starts.
