The council is a non-profit corporation committed to protecting lives and property from harm by wildfires, and to educating the public on wildfire dangers and how to reduce them. The council supports projects that help make homes, neighborhoods, and communities fire safe by management of natural and man-made resources.
We are looking for people who want to join us in volunteering to help meet these life-protecting goals. If you are interested in learning more, please come to our next meeting and introduce yourself.
Meetings are now typically held on the last Thursday of the month. Meeting location is at the CAL FIRE San Benito-Monterey Unit headquarters, 2221 Garden Road, Monterey.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, FSCMC meetings will be held on line via teleconference. If you would like to participate, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
