New Firewise tutorial video makes 2016 renewal easier

Blog Post created by luciandeaton Employee on Sep 7, 2016

With the summer coming to an end, many Firewise Communities have completed a Firewise Day that brought neighbors together to reduce their risk to wildfire.


In 2015, 67% of communities had completed their day, or their first of their many local events, by September 1st.  If you’re currently planning your Firewise Day event for the fall, thank you!


If you’ve hosted a Firewise Day in 2016, go online and renew your active status for 2016 today.


To make it easier to share your 2016 accomplishments, we’ve updated the online tutorial video.  In 2 minutes, it will help explain the online steps and what information is important to share in the event narrative.



The new video also highlights that your local risk-reduction activities are vital to help reduce the destruction that wildfires cause throughout the U.S.  These efforts are really making a difference, and they deserve to be acknowledged.
