Wrightwood Historical Society

The mission of the Wrightwood Historical Society is to collect, preserve, display, and interpret the history of Wrightwood and the surrounding areas that have a direct impact on Wrightwood. We are a community educational organization dedicated to the interpretation of history through a collection of artifacts and memorabilia donated to the Wrightwood Museum.

Wrightwood Fire Safe Council

The Wrightwood Fire Safe Council is a non-profit 501(c)(3) grassroots community-based organization that was founded in 2003. Our primary objective is to make Wrightwood less vulnerable to catastrophic wildfires. We partner with agencies to set the course for Wrightwood’s wildfire planning and are the liaison between those public agencies and the community. We also provide education and guidance to residents. Our annual Green Waste Recycling events help remove excess fuels from our community.  Our monthly meetings are open to the public.

Community Emergency Response Team

CERT is a community lead volunteer program that educates volunteers about disaster preparedness for the hazards that may occur where they live. CERT members have taken a 21-hour training course that includes first aid, utility shut off, damage assessment of buildings, hazmat recognition, triage site set up, and a variety of other training sessions. All trainings are aimed toward preparing for an emergency event before it occurs.

Wrightwood Village Foundation

The Wrightwood Village foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to helping make Wrightwood a better place to live and work. The WwVF has six areas of concentration: Arts, Civic and Public Benefits, Education and Youth, Environment, Health and Human Services, and Emergency Response. As an umbrella agency we help finance other organizations with similar goals.
