CLVFA provides response to isolated areas of the Santa Cruz Mountains in Santa Clara County, CA including Casa Loma, Loma Chiquita and Twin Falls roads. Our volunteers can respond in a matter of minutes, where professional emergency agencies may take an hour or more to arrive.
We work closely with CAL FIRE and other agencies to train our volunteers to federal standards and work with the community on preventative measures.
CLVFA brings our family and friends together through the common interest of protecting our homes and loved ones.
We need to increase the number and quality of responders. We are a wildland and medical response organization only. Our main objective is to render medical assistance until EMS can arrive, and to fight wildfires in brush and mountainous terrain.
Like to run a station and do Fire Engine upkeep? Great! We currently have 4 engines and 2 fire stations to maintain. The engines need to be exercised regularly and repaired if necessary. Stations need to be organized and inventoried.
We’re looking for leaders as well. If you or someone you know in our vicinity is experienced in or interested in command, training, outreach, or computers & radio communications, we have many projects that may interest you.
We greatly appreciate our sponsors and supporters who donate food, services, money, equipment, and time to help keep our organization running!
