Brick. Block. Stone.

In its many forms, masonry does not burn, warp, melt or twist. It maintains structural integrity during a fire and fire fighting operations. Masonry offers containment to help prevent the spread of fire and does not add fuel or emit toxic gases during a fire. And so much more. We support fire containment over suppression, protecting our structures and their inhabitants and being a tool in California’s fire safety and risk reduction efforts.

Why Masonry is a collaboration of the Mason Contractors Association of California (MCAC) and its industry partners, the Concrete Masonry Association of California and Nevada (CMACN) and Masonry Institute of America (MIA) representing the people and products of masonry construction. Our mission is to build safer, greener, stronger communities with masonry.

The various programs within the division allow CAL FIRE to continue to build local and regional capacity, as well as developing, prioritizing, and implementing strategies and projects that create wildfire prepared communities.
