Pisgah Forest Farms/Estates in North Carolina 
Michele SteinbergI am so proud of Pisgah Forest Farms/Estates in North Carolina! The community is celebrating its 5th year of participation in NFPA's Firewise Communities/USA program, a voluntary initiative to protect local residents, their property and natural resources from wildfires. Pisgah Forest Farms/Estates became a Firewise community in 2007. Since then, the community created and executed a variety of activities to help create the best wildfire prevention plan for the community. Pisgah Forest Farms/Estates’ anniversary was marked by a community wide debris cleanup campaign lasting the entire month of April followed by a picnic on June 11.
