NFPA's Wildland Fire Operations Division sponsored a booth at theFirehouse World Expo in San Diego last month to share its resources with various fire agencies looking for tools to help them succeed in their efforts to reduce wildfire risk in their communities. It was exciting to be located next to some of the brand new fire trucks that the departments were looking at to help them with fire suppression efforts!
The fire departments attending the expo took home our Firewise product catalog and other materials to learn more about Firewise and how their departments can use the program in their prevention efforts. Did you know that Firewise has some great free tools available for you to use on their website? These materials include the Firewise Toolkit, on-line learning classes, DVD’s and brochures. You can also check out our Fire Break blog and learn how your community can participate in our 2013 Firewise Challenge!
Check out the Firewise website for more information about these materials and events at www.firewise.org.
