Wildfire safety tips

Defensible spaceEvery year, wildfires burn across the U.S., and more and more people are living where wildfires are a real risk. Nearly 45 million homes abut or intermingle with wildlands and more than 72,000 U.S. communities are now at risk. But by working together residents can make their own property - and their neighborhood - much safer from wildfire.

Learn how you can stay safe: before a wildfire threatens your area; during the time a wildfire is in your area; and after a wildfire has been contained.

NFPA’s Wildland Fire Operations Division manager, Michele Steinberg, provides seven tips to help keep homes from igniting in a wildfire.
