BE FIREWISE – Community responsibility in the wildland/urban interface is a must!

Firewise USA™ is a program of the National Fire Protection Association and co-sponsored by the USDA Forest Service.

Fire is an essential element of our ecology – it benefits our forests. Wildland fires also cause destruction to the human habitat.

Firewise USA™ explains risks/causes of wildfire and explains cost-effectives solutions we can use to reduce dangers from wildfire.

Property owners can assess their risks and choose actions they are willing/able to take to reduce the danger to their families and property.

Insufficient firefighting resources are a fact that must be acknowledged in the face of an approaching wildfire threatening numerous properties at the same time.
