September 2013

Congratulations to Marc Forns, age 7, of Napa, California, for being the Napa Firewise featured young artist for September. Marc’s illustration of a threatening column of wildfire should be a motivation to get us all to become participants in September’s National Preparedness Month campaign.

Marc’s artwork was done using the theme of Wildfire Hurts Everyone, but you can create your own personal preparedness month theme.  It’s a great activity for families, students or clubs and an excellent way to segue into a conversation about personal emergency plans and their importance to people of all ages.

The Rim Fire near Yosemite National Park in California has become one of the largest fires in state history since it started on August 17, 2013.
