All wildland fires within Santa Monica Mountains Recreation Area (SMMNRA) receive full suppression action through immediate response by initial attack resources. SMMNRA has two wildland fire engines which are available to respond to these incidents. One of these engines is a large Type 3 wildland engine and the other is a smaller Type 6 wildland engine.
The protection areas within the SMMNRA boundary consists of federal, state, county, city and private property. With the many homes at risk and the large response area, SMMNRA works with numerous other state, county and local government fire agencies through cooperative fire agreements to suppress these wildfires. Ventura County Fire, Los Angeles County Fire and Los Angeles City Fire are our closest suppression resources.
