Since the start of the Firewise Challenge in January, we've been thrilled with the responses we've received from so many communities across the country regarding the mitigation work they've been doing to reduce wildfire risk. To date, 909 communities are actively involved in helping to make a difference ... what about your neighborhood? Will yours be one of the 1,000 communities that become part of the official Firewise family?
We'd love to hear from all of the communities whose residents are working together on projects and activities, and hosting events, all in the name of wildfire safety. Send us your photos and your stories or give us a shout out through our Facebook page and Twitter handle.
