NFPA Names 2022 Wildfire Community Preparedness Day Funding Award Recipients

Over the past decade, the U.S. has witnessed a steady rise in wildfire activity and experts predict this trend will only continue. Research shows, though, that voluntary individual and community actions continue to be a major component to reducing wildfire risk around homes and neighborhoods.

To this end, NFPA is pleased to announce the recipients of this year’s Wildfire Community Preparedness Day (Prep Day) funding awards. Each year individuals and communities can apply to receive $500 to help support their risk reduction project on Prep Day. The funding is generously provided by State Farm, a major supporter of our Prep Day event for the past nine years. See the list of winners on our Prep Day webpage.

This year, Prep Day takes place on Saturday, May 7. Will you be taking part? If yes, take a moment to notify us of your project by filling out your information on our Prep Day map, then take photos on event day to share with our Prep Day community.

With less than two months to event day, there is still time to make homes and communities safer from wildfire. NFPA and State Farm encourage people to get involved by planning a project (even if you didn’t receive an award) and participating. 

Congratulations to all our Prep Day award winners! We look forward to seeing the work all our communities will accomplish on this first Saturday of May 2022.
