USFA wildfire preparedness tip sheets

Blog Post created by hyltonhaynes Employee on May 14, 2014

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.
