PRESS RELEASE – Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council

MRFSC’s board has authorized assistance for those with downed trees, branches, etc., as a result of the winter storm, waiving the requirement for an abatement notice or insurance letter. To begin the request for assistance, fill out the form on its website under Programs & Services. Or call 866-923-3473.  The process turnaround is subject to weather and contractor availability.  An application is required.  Assistance is on a percentage basis and subject to certain maximums per property.

We are happy to be able to help those with the extraordinary fuel load caused by the storm.

Funding for this  assistance is available thanks to grants from CAL FIRE’s California Climate Investment Program. These grants programs are part of California Climate Investments, a statewide program that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing GHG emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment– particularly in disadvantaged communities. The Cap-and-Trade program also creates a financial incentive for industries to invest in clean technologies and develop innovative ways to reduce pollution. California Climate Investments projects include affordable housing, renewable energy, public transportation, zero-emission vehicles, environmental restoration, more sustainable  agriculture, recycling, and much more. At least 35 percent of these investments are located within and benefiting residents of disadvantaged communities, low-income communities, and low-income households across California.
