Our Mission

The MET mission is to promote the safety and well-being of the mountain community through disaster preparation and education in and around the Painted Cave and San Marcos Pass areas of the Santa Ynez Mountains. It's critical our community members participate in this vital effort to keep us connected and prepared for a disaster that could impact us without warning.
