Wildfire Prevention Direct Assistance Request Form

Thanks to Measure C, we are able to expand out partnership with  AmeriCorps St. Louis to directly help low-income, elderly, and disabled homeowners reduce the wildfire risk around their home as well as other wildfire mitigation work. This partnership will help create a more resilient and fire-safe San Rafael. We have completed this free need-based service to qualified homeowners for the season and are currently accepting applications for a 2021 waitlist.

Please note that although we will strive to help all residents who need it, we cannot guarantee assistance for everyone under this program. Our partner teams from AmeriCorps also may be required to respond to a major emergency elsewhere.

After a successful partnership during the Summer and Fall of 2019 and the Summer of 2020, we welcomed teams back to San Rafael for the Fall and Winter of 2020. 

How to Request Assistance

  1. Please fill out the request form and the waiver form below.
  2. Email the completed forms to San Rafael Fire Department staff.
  3. If you have any additional questions, please call the Fire Administration Offices at (415) 485-3304. We will follow up with you as soon as possible.
