Could you use a little financial help for a  Wildfire Community Preparedness Day project?  Don't delay, apply today!  Get funding for a project or event on May 2 during NFPA's national campaign, thanks to generous support from State Farm. The application period for $500 project awards closes in just one week, on Friday, February 28, 2020.

What can you do with $500? Use it to do a project or put on an event on May 2 where residents can work together on wildfire safety. Participation helps create a sense of community, where neighbors begin to look out for each other.  Wildfire Community Preparedness Day projects can also help strengthen relationships between residents and the local fire department, land management agencies, community leaders and elected officials.

NFPA has provided many resources to help you get started and be successful. Start with the new Wildfire Community Preparedness Day Toolkit! From picking a project to tracking progress and promoting the event, the toolkit provides a number of great resources to guide you through the process and your journey to wildfire preparedness.
