A Firewise Community is engaged in wildfire risk reduction activities. The Program encourages neighbors to work together to reduce the risk in their area and is driven by the goal of making their neighborhood safer by making properties and homes more resistant to wildfire. The Program encourages local solutions for safety by involving homeowners in taking individual responsibility for preparing their homes for the risk of wildfire.

Here is more information about the program and tools that can help you prepare for wildfire season:
