MRFSC Abatement Assistance
Thanks to a NEW grant from CAL FIRE's California Climate Investment Program, Mountain Rim FSC launched its newest abatement assistance program in July 2020.
In 2021, MRFSC received a grant from San Bernardino County Supervisor Janice Rutherford to augment this program.
These grants allow 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.
