Take a swing against wildfire:  enter the Firewise Challenge!

Is your community Firewise?

We challenge you, neighborhood residents, to "take a swing" against wildfire!

BYBWith only a few months to go before the end of the year, NFPA is hard at work in its effort to "enroll" 1,000 recognized Firewise communities by December 31. To date, our records show a total of 980 sites in 40 states! This number includes communities that have renewed their Firewise status and those that have become officially recognized for the first time during 2013. Awesome job!

While we're confident that we'll get to our goal, we've added an extra "punch" to our efforts with a Firewise Challenge campaign. Check out this lighthearted approach and see what all the buzz is about!

You can follow the progress of "1,000 Safer Places:  The Firewise Challenge," on our website and learn more about how you can get involved!
