MCFSC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dependent on donations from private citizens and groups dedicated to creating fire adapted, resilient communities.
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.
