Free Home Assesments Are Available!

This amazing FREE opportunity gives you a non-judgmental, non-binding, non-regulatory, risk-free educational experience. You schedule the time and place, and our assessor will:

  • explain the basics of assessing your home’s wildfire risks
  • review the most important steps you can take to reduce those risks
  • walk through your property to identify which improvements are highest priority
  • answer any questions you have, and
  • leave literature, if you like, to help you learn even more.

Funding for this project is provided by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection’s Fire Prevention Program. Initial funding for this project was provided by The Community Foundation of Mendocino County.  Current funding for this project is provided by the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection’s Fire Prevention Program.

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.

Join a Neighborhood Fire Safe Council- or Start your own

You and your neighbors know your community’s strengths, priorities, and vulnerabilities in the face of fire. Neighborhood Fire Safe Councils facilitate collective action in wildfire planning, preparation, and education.

Home Hardening

Flying embers can ignite & destroy homes up to a mile ahead of a wildfire.  Homeowners should “harden” their homes long before a fire starts. Check out our video series to learn about measures you can take to harden your home, presented in order of priority.
