Our organization was formed in 1998 following the 1997 Mill Fire which started on Forest Service land by recreational shooters.. Citizens rallied against the dangers thought to arise from a shooting range below our community. The Front Country Alliance was created as a means to address these threats. It became clear that as residents of the WUI (Wildland urban interface), we needed to take more responsibility for OUR properties and what we could do to make them more fire safe. In 1999, mentored by California Department of Forestry (CDF – now CAL FIRE) Battalion Chief Steve Faris, the mountain came together to form the Mountain Rim Fire Safe Council. Our Council joined Chief Faris in spreading the word and ultimately help create more than 14 councils throughout the Inland Empire.
