Finding innovation for wildfire preparedness during quarantine

Blog Post created by luciandeaton Employee on Jul 9, 2020
The July edition of NFPA Journal is out and in its Wildfire column, Michele Steinberg reflects on how NFPA had to pivot its wildfire preparedness messages as people coped with how to stay safe from other immediate health risks at the same time. 


As states enforced COVID-19-related lockdows in May, advocates working on Wildfire Awareness Month campaigns, the Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, and even local "Firewise Days" had to think of new ways to engage with residents. 


Michele explores how they maintained relevancy, even during a pandemic.
