✠ Forest Fires & Your Home

This page will give you information on safety measures for your home and property in the event of a forest fire.  The National Fire Protection Association oversees a program known as Firewise Communities.  The idea of the program is 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.  Please follow the link to the Firewise Communities home page for information on keeping your community and your property safe during a wildland fire.  While the entire web site has considerable information please follow the Wildfire Preparedness tab at the top of the page for information specific to things you can do to keep your property safe.
