How to ignite your community's action and interest in making a difference that is!

Tim Weaver headshotJoin us this Thursday, November 19, at 1:00pm EST for the next Firewise Virtual Workshop with Lt. Tim Weaver of the Rapid City, South Dakota, Fire Department, as he shares how you can ignite community action and build trust in wildfire preparedness.

We are still accepting questions about engaging neighbors in preparedness or building partnership with another local agency to "Ask an Expert".  If you have one, simply email your question to LDeaton@nfpa.org.  The top submissions will be highlighted and put to Lt. Weaver for answer in the workshop.

I am happy to share that we currently have nearly 60 registrants from 22 states and the numbers are growing. 

This “Ask an Expert” workshop will see Lt. Weaver share lessons learned for both the homeowner and local agency in Firewise and Fire Adapted Community concept efforts.  He will share his experience in gaining residential trust around wildfire mitigation requests, and his agency work with local officials in developing mitigation solutions.
