National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Firewise Communities Program

Becoming Firewise is a process. Being Firewise is not difficult, but requires commitment. A Firewise person pays attention to those details in his/her environment that might start or encourage the spread of a wildfire. You can learn about how to do that on the Firewise Home Page. The Firewise web site contains educational information for people who live or vacation in fire-prone areas of the United States. It was designed to acquaint YOU with the challenges of living with wildland fire. As you get familiar with various sections of the site, you will learn more about wildland fire protection, whether you are a homeowner or a firefighter. You can read Wildfire News & Notes, a publication for wildland firefighters. Or you can access one of the site's many interactive games or tutorials. If you have specific questions, ask a wildland fire expert, or use the Firewise message board. The Firewise Home Page provides learning opportunities in its Firewise Communities Workshop area and tells you how to make your own neighborhood Firewise by participating in the Firewise Communities/USA recognition program.
