When looking at wildfire preparedness, it is important to remember that everyone has a role to play, including residents. More and more people are living where wildfires are a real risk, but that risk doesn't have to go unchecked. There are proactive steps that individuals and neighbors can take to help protect their homes and communities and improve their safety when faced with a wildfire.
Join us Wednesday, October 7th at 4 p.m. EDT as NFPA’s wildfire safety team discusses the Firewise USA program and resources to help you and your neighbors on your wildfire preparedness journey. We’ll walk step by step through the process of organizing a Firewise USA site, using our online portal and web resources to help you learn about wildfire and take action to make homes more ignition-resistant.
If you’re already part of one of the more than 1,700 Firewise USA sites around the nation, we’ll show you how to update your information for 2020 and point out where to find new and helpful resources to educate and motivate your neighbors. Remember, annual renewal applications are due by November 20, 2020.
Register today for Becoming Wildfire Ready with Firewise USA: Tips, Tools and Techniques and share the event with your friends and neighbors. Just in case you aren't able to join us live, the event will be recorded and available on our website at a later date.
As we navigate the evolving situation with COVID-19, NFPA remains committed to supporting you with the resources you need to minimize risk and help prevent loss, injuries, and death from fire, electrical, and other hazards.
