2014 Wildfire Community Preparedness DayJoin communities throughout the U.S. on Saturday, May 3, 2014 as NFPA launches its first National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day! 

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.
