In 2011, Edmond, OK received the award for “Most Outstanding Community in its Class,” an award they’ve won now five years in a row. In an effort to continue to build on its “most outstanding status” this year, firefighters will go one step further to work with community members through their Firewise outreach program and provide residents with safety information on wildfires.

According to Edmond’s Fire Maj. Kelly Lewis, he and other members of the Edmond fire Department are utilizing the knowledge of the Firewise program in order to help keep their “number one perfect suburb” that much safer from impending wildfire danger.
