This week, FIRESafe MARIN will provide a simple, 7 day guide to improving your home and family's wildfire preparedness with simple, easy, inexpensive tips.
Now that you've followed our step-by-step guide to preparing your home and family for wildfire, why not organize your entire neighborhood? In order to be truly "fire safe," every home in your community needs to play its part in preparing, by creating defensible space and using fire-safe building materials and practices.
NFPA’s Firewise Communities Program encourages local solutions for safety by involving homeowners in taking individual responsibility for preparing their homes from the risk of wildfire. Firewise is a key component of Fire Adapted Communities – a collaborative approach that connects all those who play a role in wildfire education, planning and action with comprehensive resources to help reduce risk.
To save lives and property from wildfire, NFPA's Firewise Communities program teaches people how to adapt to living with wildfire and encourages neighbors to work together and take action now to prevent losses. We all have a role to play in protecting ourselves and each other from the risk of wildfire.
Thanks for following our simple 7 day wildfire preparedness program, in honor of the 2017 Wildfire Preparedness Week. By committing one hour a day, for a week, you truly made a difference. Look for weekly newsletters from FIRESafe MARIN during fire season, and be vigilant and safe this fire-season.
