Just five more days until Wildfire Community Preparedness Day begins and grassroots projects to reduce wildfire risk happen throughout the U.S. and Canada. The campaign’s Put Your Project on the map feature reflects 115 projects that have been planned to help make community’s a safer place to live and be better prepared in the event of a wildfire; the map is a great way to demonstrate actions, so add yours today and get bragging rights for all you're doing.

If you think it’s too late to get involved, think again! There are project ideas for individuals, families, or entire neighborhoods and they come in all shapes, sizes and time commitments too; there’s even some that don’t require leaving your home. So there’s no excuse for not getting involved.

Change your FacebookTwitter and Instagram profile photos; use the prewritten social media posts to share important safety and preparedness tips and tell everyone you know how they can accomplish something great too!

Capture your May 2 efforts with a short video and add it to You Tube, post your project pictures in the Facebook Photo Album, or use Twitter to send important tips via #WildfirePrepDay.

Join others throughout the nation making their communities a safer place this Saturday, May 2. Check out the map and take a look at all the great things occurring where you live!
