The purpose of Sherwood Firewise Communities is to create and support fire adaptive and resilient communities. This is a volunteer organization. We work with other Fire Safe Groups, Brooktrails Fire Department, the County of Mendocino, and other governmental organizations to maximize our ability to create a safer environment for our residents to withstand emergencies. Consider joining us if you are not already a member!

We invite you to view the different pages of this website. SFC has listed information on personal evacuation planning as well and communication alerts and other resources that may be important in an emergency situation. Being prepared creates a safer environment for all.

Join SafetyNet for Local Incident Notices

Join SafetyNet for notice (by text, email or phone) of verified incidents that relate to the Sherwood Corridor. This system does not take the place of the Mendocino County MendoAlert System. However, it may provided additional information about local incidents that might affect the Sherwood Corridor. If feasible, know your immediate neighbors. Know if someone is disabled, frequently without transportation, or has pets, livestock or other needs. Click here for a SafetyNet registration form and to read more about SafetyNet.

Join the SFC Community

SFC is always in need of additional volunteers. We need people with experience in administration, data entry, website maintenance, publicity, grant writing, accounting, and project management. Email SFC at with contact information to join SFC.

Helpful Links, Lists & Resources

Mendocino County Emergency Alerts

It is recommended that you register for both of the Mendocino County Sheriff’s emergency alert systems to receive evaluations notices and orders. Sign up for Nixle by cell phone by texting 95490 to 888777. Sign up for MendoAlert (notice by phone, text or email)

Order a CAL FIRE Approved Address Sign

Order a large green CAL FIRE approved address sign. This will be very helpful for first responders finding your exact location in case of an emergency, especially if it is smokey or dark.
