During a wildfire, embers can rain down on your home like an ember blizzard. Learn about the easy steps you can take to protect your home from embers.
Firewise teaches people to work together to reduce wildfire risks throughout their community. Becoming Firewise is a process, not an endpoint. Being Firewise is not difficult, but requires commitment. A Firewise person pays attention to those details in his or her environment that might start or encourage the spread of a wildfire.
Find out how to make your neighborhood Firewise by participating in the Firewise Communities USA Recognition Program.
