Western states highlight May as Wildfire Awareness Month

Blog Post created by Lisa Marie Sinatra Employee on May 4, 2015
Just because Wildfire Community Preparedness Day finished up this weekend, that's no reason not to keep the great momentum going! It just so happens that a declaration, signed by seven Western state governors last year (withSouth Dakota joining this year!), designates May as“Wildfire Awareness Month.” This means that residents in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, California, Montana and now South Dakota are being prompted to do their part in helping reducing risk of wildfire damage to theirhomes and neighborhoods before the 2015 fire season kicks into high gear. Wildfire
