A: The 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.

Fire Adapted Communities means that everything at risk of wildfire is prepared, including businesses, infrastructure, cultural resources, and natural areas. The Fire Adapted Communities Program is a collaborative approach that connects all those who play a role in wildfire education, planning and action with comprehensive resources to help reduce risk and educate on possible funding assistance.
