Wildfire Preparedness

The Morgan Hill Fire Department is proud to make fire prevention and preparedness its top priority within the community.  The primary purpose of fire prevention is to reduce the risk of fire emergencies in the community, to ensure the safety of residents, visitors, employees, and patrons, and to protect the continuity of operations in our business community.

Morgan Hill‘s Fire Prevention efforts have been recognized by the National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM) and the Grinnell Mutual with the honor of the Life Safety Achievement Award.

While the department maintains committed to fire prevention and preparedness, we still need help from you at home.  Below are programs and links to guide you through the steps needed to ensure our community is ready for when fire comes.
