MCFSC Fire Safety Micro-Grant Program

2022 Fire Safety Micro-Grant Program

Our 2022 grant cycle is concluded, the projects have been implemented, and it was a great success!  MCFSC’s micro-grants helped local groups achieve many small but strategic priorities; funded projects included: installation of water tanks along Bell Springs Road; evacuation signage along Black Bart Road; water-system infrastructure for the Comptche Fire Department; a large water tank for Redwood Coast Fire Protection District; defensible space education in Laytonville; purchase of Knox Locks for the Hopland Fire Department; mobile mapping for the South Coast Fire Protection District; purchase of fuel-reduction equipment by the Westport Fire Department; and pond-water piping to Signal Ridge Road in Anderson Valley.
