Pictures from the MPC Fire Academy 19-1's "Wildland Week". All 21 recruits completed a grueling 7-day week focusing on Wildland Firefighting. They were tested both physically and mentally on a number of subjects ranging from their 10's & 18's, LCES, Wildland PPE and Fire Shelters to Progressive Hoselays, Mobile Attack, WUI & Handline Construction. They are trained to learn all of the necessary skills needed to work as a Seasonal FF1 with CAL FIRE. Instructors from the local San Benito-Monterey Unit (BEU) help coordinate and facilitate the training for the recruits to prepare them for a future career with CAL FIRE. ... See MoreSee Less

Cypress Residents, please take advantage of this program and help us remove hazardous fuels!

Chipper Program
Residents living in the Cypress Fire Protection District are invited to participate in the 2019 Residential Chipper Program. The Chipper Program is funded by the Cypress FPD to assist with the disposal of hazardous fuels. Property owners who remove vegetative material from their property to reduce the wildland fire hazard can have the material chipped and disposed of at no cost. The chipped material will be removed from the site. Alternately, the chips may be left on site at the request of the property owner. The chipping will begin on the South end of the fire district and progress to the North. The chipping contractor is processing large volumes of material and it may take several days to reach each neighborhood. No sign up necessary. No appointments will be made and no deviation from the planned route will occur. Your cooperation and patience is appreciated.

Requirements to participate in the program:

-All cut limbs must be stacked (no higher than 4 feet) along the roadside, no later than 8:00 am on the 1st Monday of each 2-week period. Must stack neatly with the butt end perpendicular to the road.
-All limbs/branches/brush must be no more than 6 inches in diameter and may be any length.
-All material to be chipped must be clear of metal objects (no nails or other objects in the wood).
-No genista.
-No poison oak.
-No vines.

Residential Chipping Program Dates 2019
April 8 – 26
July 8 – 19
September 16 – 27
November 4 – 15
