Big Sur Fire


The Big Sur Volunteer Fire Brigade is a group of community members providing dependable fire and emergency services to all of Big Sur with a spirit of teamwork, respect and integrity.

The Big Idea

Big Sur Fire is a volunteer fire brigade that has been a keystone of the Big Sur community for 47 years. They have battled wildfires, saved homes, lives and countless acres of forest, most recently helping to extinguish the Dolan Fire in 2020. The nonprofit’s main goal is to provide dependable fire and emergency services to all of Big Sur, serving 70 miles of coastline. Faced with rising operational costs coupled with the loss of fundraising opportunities because of the pandemic, Big Sur Fire seeks funding through MCGives! because Big Sur residents deserve a ready and operational fire brigade.

Big Sur Fire plays a vital role serving the 70 miles of the Big Sur coast. Whether it is a vehicle roll over on Highway 1, a fire started by downed power lines, dry lightning or a careless and illegal campfire, or a medical emergency at home or at work, BSF is generally first on the scene providing a professional emergency response. Their service is essential to the health and safety of the Big Sur community and the millions of visitors who drive Highway 1 for the first time, each year.
