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.

After two successful years of partnership, we welcomed teams back to San Rafael for Summer 2021 and Fall of 2021. Our Fall assistance program will run from November 8th-December 17th and focus on Juniper removal. To apply for the FREE Juniper removal visit this site to complete and submit the forms required to be considered: https://www.cityofsanrafael.org/documents/free-juniper-removal/ 

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.
