Two helpful wildfire preparedness tips sheets were recently published by the U.S. Fire Administration. The first one revisits some Firewise Principles and the second is a closer look at personal/family evacuation planning. In addition to these very important actions, one also need to begin thinking about their home in relation to others, because what one homeowner does directly impacts a neighboring homeowner in the event of a wildfire. One way to engage the community as a whole is through the National Firewise Communities/USA® recognition program.
