Colorado has experienced an earlier than usual wildfire season and it has prompted us in NFPA’s Firewise Communities Program to reach out further to those who may be affected by introducing an op-ed filled with important tips and resources regarding wildland fire mitigation and safety. Unlike traditional press releases that reach thousands of people across the country, our op-ed piece was written with Coloradans in mind, and highlights some of the steps the state is already taking to keep its citizens safe.
Thanks to The Denver Post who posted this op-ed online and for recognizing the importance of wildland fire prevention and homeowner responsibility.
We look forward to seeing more of our op-ed pieces in papers across the country. Have you seen examples of Firewise in action in your state or community? Feel free to share your stories with us. We’re always happy to highlight the great work our neighbors are doing.
