La Honda Fire Brigade joins Coastside Gives

We are pleased to announce that the La Honda Fire Brigade will be participating in COASTSIDE GIVES! This is an exciting opportunity to support local nonprofits. Coastside Gives brings the San Mateo Coast together as one community in a one-day giving event on May 6, 2021.

Your gift through Coastside Gives is critical to our mission of providing the best response to fires on the coast.

Specifically, your gift helps us:

  • Purchase a Type 5 Wildland Fire Engine that can traverse our rugged backroads and light-weight bridges, getting firefighters to the source of the fire. This small fire engine can carry up to 500 gallons of water / foam and firefighting equipment.

We can reach our goal of $100,000 if YOU fundraise just 1% by giving $100 and getting 9 of your friends / family to do the same. You can schedule your donation now:

Open Burn Status

Open burning is restricted in San Mateo County. Read on to learn more.

The widgets to the left help determine, at a glance, if burning with a permit is allowed. At a minimum

  1. You must have a burn permit

  2. There must be no Spare The Air alert

  3. The Coast Section status for today must say "Burn" (not "No Burn"). You may call (800) 792-0787 for a voice recording of the current burn status.

If you do not have a permit, or you are not familiar with the process, do not proceed with open burning.
