About the MVFF:

The Mayacamas Volunteer Fire Foundation is chartered to keep our community safe, informed and connected. The MVFF is focused on community engagement and fundraising. Through our Fire Safe Council we secure grants to reduce fuel load/fire danger and educate our community on fire safety resources.  MVFF was founded in 1980 as the Mayacamas Volunteer Fire Department (MVFD). The volunteer firefighters are the first responders for emergencies in an especially challenging area just to the east of Sonoma Valley. Our name evolved in 2021 to represent the role we play in partnership with the Sonoma Valley Fire District.


A special thanks to Gordenker Ranch for hosting the event!
