Peace of mind is something that can be obtained by community members as they engage in Firewise project work over time, by improving the overall safety of their neighborhood.  Communities that work together and with agency partners like Sunset Vista Estates can create a better assessment of their risks which in turn helps them plan and implement more effective project work.  Your community can create a healthier and safer place to work and live by becoming Firewise ®.

 

Sunset Vista Estates at Flagstaff, Arizona

 

Sunset Vista Estates held their Firewise Day outdoors in a cul de sac within the community. The Summit Fire District Battalion Chief talked to the group about fire prevention and wildfire mitigation procedures to be used in the community. The Firewise board handed out printed information on reducing fuels and hardening homes to resist wildfire.  Neighbors had the opportunity to ask questions of the Battalion Chief and the Firewise board, and to share useful tips.

 

  Sunset Vista Estates tell us, “”Sunset Vista Estates enjoys the safety and peace of mind of having identified and mitigated our specific wildfire concerns with the help of Firewise and our local fighters. The Firewise events we hold strengthen our neighborhood bond, and help make our community a healthier place to live, work, play, and enjoy Northern Arizona.”
