National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day

SAVE THE DATE! - May 3, 2014

Join communities throughout the U.S. on Saturday, May 3, 2014 as NFPA launches its first national Wildfire Community Preparedness Day! 

Commit a couple of hours, or the entire day, and watch as your actions positively contribute to reducing your community’s wildfire risk. Challenge your friends, your family, relatives, faith-based group or youth organization to develop a project and join others throughout the nation in making big changes. Your efforts will help raise wildfire awareness, promote collaboration and bring neighbors together to work on projects that can help protect homes, neighborhoods and entire communities from future wildfire risk or current post-fire impacts.

For project ideas that can be done around your home and across your neighborhood, check out our project ideas list (PDF, 26 KB). In some areas, organized group projects may be available for you to join – check our Facebook page in the future to see if there’s one near you. You can also follow us on twitter @Firewise and join the conversation at #WildfirePrepDay.

With a few months to go before the big day, we’ll have lots of new information to share including updated project sites, project ideas, safety tips, templates, flyers and more. Visit this page regularly for the latest news and resources.

Do something GREAT – be a local champion, and get started today!
