So it's June, halfway through 2013 and we couldn't be prouder of the tremendous work so many residents across the country have been doing this year to help keep their homes and neighborhoods safer from wildfire. Our 1,000 Safer Places: The Firewise Challenge certainly helps us to continue to raise awareness about this important issue especially as we enter another challenging wildfire season this year. The Challenge is also a great way for neighbors to help neighbors acheive their wildfire safety goals and as of June 1, we're proud to say 903 communities have officially become members of the Firewise family. And this number only continues to grow.
