If you are thinking about what activities you and your family, friends, and neighbors would like to do to improve your wildfire preparedness capabilities, consider participating in next year’s Wildfire Community Preparedness Day on May 5, 2018. This is a great opportunity to work together to address your risk with actions that can improve your community’s resilience.
Now is the time to work on a plan of action and collaborate with agency partners to help you in identifying risks to your community. NFPA’s Firewise USA site also has resources you can use to understand what your risks are in the home ignition zone.
Create your plan and get ready to apply next year from January 8, through March 2, 2018, for one of 150 funding awards, with generous support from State Farm that will be given to help with project implementation. Participate on this day to be a part of helping to create safer, more resilient communities across the nation.
