It has been such a pleasure to see grant applications coming in already for Wildfire Community Preparedness Day. I am also excited to hear that so many communities have plans to apply and I am looking forward to getting your community’s application.
As I have been working with such a dedicated team at the NFPA, many who are all working hard to help make this application process a reality, and seeing the interest from many communities across the United States, I thought about a quote from John F. Kennedy, “One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.” The Wildfire Community Preparedness Day grant applications give everyone the opportunity to try to make a difference. We all have a part to play to reduce loss from wildfires and actions that we take following good principles can make a difference.
NFPA offers some opportunities for you to learn how to apply by registering for a free webinar, free online resources including; downloadable flyers, a safety guide, success stories from the past, best practices for applying, and more. Put together and submit your application today. And follow our web page to vote for your favorites.
