National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day


"Our Mitigation specialists worked with their communities to do something for wildfire preparedness day…and many more participated in their own activities on May 3. I think this is a great event and will be an even bigger success as more and more people catch on."

Commit a couple of hours, or the entire day, and watch as your actions positively contribute to reducing your community’s wildfire risk. Challenge your friends, your family, relatives, faith-based group or youth organization to develop a project and join others throughout the nation in making big changes. Your efforts will help raise wildfire awareness, promote collaboration and bring neighbors together to work on projects that can help protect homes, neighborhoods and entire communities from future wildfire risk or current post-fire impacts.
