Defensible Space Fuel Reduction at Falkirk Cultural Center Beginning August 22, 2022

Posted on August 19, 2022


The San Rafael Fire Department will be conducting vegetation work behind Falkirk Cultural Center as a part of the MWPA-funded South San Rafael Hill Fuel Reduction Project.

The City of San Rafael is part of the Marin Wildfire Prevention Authority (MWPA). In 2020, Marin County voters passed special tax Measure C, which established a Joint Powers Authority, the MWPA, to fund and oversee proactive state-of-the-art wildfire prevention and preparedness efforts within the County. The purpose of the project is to reduce excessive fuels and fire hazardous vegetation within 100 feet of the historically significant Falkirk mansion and Elks Lodge. The project will also improve access by local fire departments in the event of an emergency.
