Blog Post created by Aron Anderson Employee on Aug 1, 2017

In collaboration with the U.S.D.A. Forest Service, NFPA is proud to launch our new Firewise USA™ online application and renewal system we've dubbed the Firewise Portal. This new portal brings the Firewise USA program™ fully online with a new and intuitive system that allows a collaborative place for potential Firewise sites to document and track their progress while they work towards becoming a nationally recognized Firewise program participant.

 

Firewise Portal DashboardIn addition, we've designed the new portal to guide participating residential sites in documenting their annual renewal information  in a more intuitive and user friendly way. The new renewal process seamlessly guides users through the process of documenting the Firewise events and the mitigation activities that were completed throughout the year.

 

It also provides the program's Firewise State Liaisons a more active role in managing their state's program. The end result is a new system that is able to assist sites in continuing their ever important efforts to make where they live safer and more resilient to wildfires.

 

The Firewise USA program is co-sponsored by the USDA Forest Service, the US Department of the Interior, and the National Association of State Foresters.  This portal was equal funding partnership between the USDA Forest Service and NFPA.
