Developing a Firewise® Community in an area that is prone to wildfire and making it safer can be done cost effectively with great benefits. Safer From the Start: Developing a Firewise Community documents the journey of one developer that incorporated Firewise principles when he developed a new subdivision. It covers the agencies he worked with, changes he made to his original plan, types of construction and landscaping materials he used that ultimately created a safer environment for the potential homeowners, yet still offers homeowners great amenities at minimal cost. The video also covers what could happen and the risks to property and people's lives when Firewise steps are not implemented.
