Welcome to the home page of the Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council (MCFSC), one of more than 125 fire safe councils in California. Formed in 2001, the Council is made up of a group of volunteers and staff who believe passionately in the need for all residents of the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa Mountains to work together to make their communities more fire safe.

You are invited to browse our web site. Find out about the thousands of hours Council members and other residents have invested in this most important task. Please join us. Membership is $20 and up depending on the level you choose. Most important, join our ranks as a volunteer.

Board meetings of the MCFSC are open for interested members of the community to attend. They are usually held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. in the Meeting Room of the Mountain Communities Resource Center on Franklin Drive.

Give us a call at 951-659-6208 or email us at info@mcfsc.org if you have any questions or would like to share some thoughts about our work. Join us on Facebook

Goldspotted Oak Borer Resources

The Goldspotted oak borer which devastated oak trees in San Diego County has arrived in Idyllwild. It could impact land and home values by killing our oak trees. Learn about this pest and what you can do to help keep it from spreading. The Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council, the U.S. Forest Service, CAL FIRE, UC Riverside and the Idyllwild Garden Club are working together to develop a large volunteer effort and a plan to keep this pest from destroying our oak trees and spreading. It is critical that oak fire wood not be transported up the Hill or taken from the Hill. For in depth information go to the following web sites:
