Wondering what your small, rural community can do to be safer from wildfire? As part of the Rural Fire Symposium at NFPA, I'll be talking with representatives of US fire departments who cope with the challenges of brush, grass and forest fires and potential losses of life, property, livelihoods and natural resources. NFPA and its partners have lots of free and low-cost resources to share with rural fire departments and community residents to help improve the future of wildfire safety. Learn about Firewise USA, Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, TakeAction for teens, and much more.
