Blog Post created by lisamariesinatra Employee on May 2, 2014

Tomorrow is May 3 and that means hundreds of residents across the country will be engaging in risk reduction projects for Wildfire Community Preparedness Day. NFPA’s wildfire division and State Farm are thrilled beyond measure at the overwhelming response we’ve received from neighborhoods, residents, organizations and groups who have shared with us their plans for the day.

As you prepare for your event tomorrow, the staff here at NFPA is busy entering all of the projects into our Prep Day project map. At this point, we have close to 100 entered already! Haven't entered yours yet? There's still time! Head to our wildfire prep day page and follow the simple instructions. Thanks to everyone who submitted their information. The creativity and thought that was put into every one of these projects is truly amazing and inspiring! Prep day

I’d also be remiss if I didn’t remind everyone to take photos at your event and share them. Whether it's before and after shots, group photos or action shots, we'd love to hear from you. Find us on Facebook and post your photo at any time tomorrow or after your event.

Curious about what other folks are doing? You can join the conversation at any time. Just follow us on @Firewise, at #WildfirePrepDay.

And lastly, it’s also not too late to hand out our safety tips and safety gear guidelines to your participants. You can find this and other great resources on our wildfire prep day webpage.

Thanks again to everyone who is participating tomorrow. Because of your passion and devotion to community safety, you have made this Prep Day event a HUGE success.

And don’t forget ... stay tuned to NFPA’s wildfire social media platforms and websites after May 3 to get the final results from the day, along with all of the stories and photos you provided.

Good luck everyone! Stay safe and have fun!
