Adopting Firewise Communities USA (NFPA)

NFPA's Firewise Communities/USA Recognition Program encourages and acknowledges citizen action to reduce community wildfire risk. The program capitalizes on a community's spirit, its resolve, and its willingness to take responsibility for its wildlife ignition potential.

The program provides a flexible template for resi-dents of homeowners associations or small towns to improve their wildfire readiness, and works as an organizing mechanism for initiating wildfire mitigation actions. Participation in Firewise Communities/USA is an ongoing process of community commitment to wildfire safety.
