MRFSC Abatement Assistance
Thanks to a grant from CAL FIRE's California Climate Investment Program, Mountain Rim FSC launched its newest abatement assistance program in July 2020.
This grant allows us to assist with abatement compliance for communities from Crestline/Waterman Canyon on the west to Big Bear Valley communities on the east.
MRFSC's program responds to Notices to Abate, Violations from San Bernardino County, CAL FIRE, local fire departments as well as insurance letters.This program is NOT a general maintenance service.
Once the property is brought into compliance it is with the understanding that the owner will maintain the defensible space.
If you have received a Notice from the County, CAL FIRE, a fire department or insurance correction letter, please use the form to the left or call 866-923-3473.
If you are looking for local contractors, visit our Contractors page.
IF YOU RECEIVE A NOTICE after you are on our list, you MUST contact MRFSC immediately to avoid penalties and fees. Email or fax the notice to MRFSC so we can also contact the agency issuing the notice. Our fax # is 866-923-3473 or email MountainRimFSC@gmail.com.
All requests must have a completed application. MRFSC can pay 10 to 100% of the cost of bringing the property into compliance, based upon household income and other information. There are also maximum amounts per property and per property owner (for multiple parcels) and other property restrictions in order to allow us to help as many people as possible. All decisions by MRFSC are final. Contact us at MountainRimFSC@gmail.com if you have any questions.
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.
