Featured in the winter issue of the Firewise How-to Newsletter, Jim Pauley recognizes the nearly 1100 active Firewise communities in the US for their ongoing efforts in reducing wildfire risk. As of this year, there are over 1.3 million wildland/urban interface residents living in Firewise communities.
Mitigation projects have been very successful in protecting homes and properties from the damaging risk of Wildfire thanks to the actions of these people. Their commitment and dedication are what drives and inspire even more people to participate in Wildfire prevention programs.
For those who wish to renew their application for recognition this year, check out the renewal video on the Firewise site for more info.
