As we approach the end of October many of you are hard at work documenting your wildfire safety mitigation activities for 2012, conducting your Firewise Day events and sending your forms in to your state liaison’s office before the December 31 deadline.
But here’s something you may not have thought of. Submit the photos you took during your Firewise Day event to our 2014 Firewise calendar contest . It’s easy and fun to do!
Here’s how it works…as you and your neighbors participate in your event, snap a few photographs of everyone pitching in and helping out. Whether it’s during a “chipper day” or a local fair or landscaping maintenance project, photos are a great way to celebrate your hard work and inspire other residents and communities to get involved. Entrants may submit up to 10 unique and original photos so unleash your inner creative shutterbug and show us your best shot! NFPA will choose the top 15 winning entries to be showcased in our 2014 Firewise calendar. Winners also receive an Amazon gift card.
Got questions? Take a look at our official rules then submit your photos, complete with information about the event including the date, where it was held and who was involved. But don’t wait too long. The deadline for submission is November 2! </p>
We hope to hear from you soon! And thanks to everyone who already submitted their photos for consideration. Keep up the great work!
