Free Curbside Chipping returning for 2021!
Registration for June cycle will open May 20th
MRFSC's CAL FIRE grant for $187,000 for Curbside Chipping was fully expended in 2020. Additional funding efforts have been on-going since then. MRFSC has been fortunate to receive funding from Southern California Edison / California Fire Safe Council, which combined with funds from the CAL FIRE abatement grant, will allow MRFSC to offer the FREE curbside service for the months of June and July. If MRFSC is successful in other grant applications, additional cycles will be offered in August and September of this year.

FREE Firewood Giveaway
This event was a success - we look forward to doing it again!
Thank you CAL FIRE!
Thanks to CAL FIRE crews, Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council was able to offer a free firewood giveaway on in December 2020.
It was NOT split firewood. It as mostly rounds, with some smaller pieces. It is comprised of mixed wood, but primarily pine. Virtually all of it will need to be split or chopped into firewood size pieces to use in a fire place.
MRFSC volunteers were on site to help coordinate the activity, but were not available to help load vehicles.
MRFSC will update its Facebook page (MountainRimFSC) and this website if future firewood giveaways are possible.

FIRST RESPONDER DAY continues to be a success!
The Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council and State Senator Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga) invited the community to participate in a day of recognition for local emergency personnel at the inaugural California First Responder Day at Snow Valley Mountain Resort held on September 23, 2017.
First responders and their families, as well as the community, attended this special event. Activities included opportunities for kids to explore fire trucks, ambulance, police vehicles and helicopters. While meeting first responders there were demonstrations, safety information and special visits by Smokey Bear.
Food vendors were also be onsite.
The Senate Resolution, authored by Senator Morrell and adopted by the State Senate, designates September 23rd
as First Responder Day in California.
“California is prone to earthquakes, wildfires, flooding, and other disasters that all require active preparation and response efforts,” said Senator Morrell. “At the heart of our state’s emergency action capability are its first responders. No greater courage is demonstrated than that of the dedicated heroes who run into harm’s way rather than away from it. This day is one of gratitude and appreciation. I am honored to take part in recognizing these men and women.”
Plan on joining us again in 2021 in as we honor First Responders. What will YOU do in YOUR community?
