New Preparedness Day Kickoff Video Answers Questions about Ways to Participate in Wildfire Risk Reduction Projects

Each year with the start of the application process for grant funding for Wildfire Community Preparedness Day (Prep Day), NFPA receives a lot of great questions from people across the country about how to participate in the event. Last week, NFPA hosted its first “Facebook Live Prep Day Kickoff event,” which gave viewers the chance to ask their questions live and hear from experts about wildfire preparedness.

If you missed the event, the video is now on demand! Find it on the Prep Day landing page along with a lot of other great resources including a toolkit, checklists, and social media cards to download and help get you started.

Since 2014, community groups and individuals have taken part in the campaign, completing hundreds of wildfire safety projects across the U.S. Will you join us this year? Apply for a funding award and learn how you can participate in a risk reduction or wildfire preparedness activity on Saturday, May 7 and help make your home and community safer from wildfire.
