The Firewise Communities Program is a project of the National Fire Protection Association. Firewise encourages local solutions for fire safety by showing homeowners how to take individual responsibility for protecting their homes from wildfire. Firewise is a key component of Fire Adapted Communities – a collaborative approach that connects all those who play a role in wildfire education, planning and action with comprehensive resources to help reduce risk.

From the basics of defensible space and sound landscaping techniques to research on how homes ignite (and what you can do about it), there are tips, tools and teachings you can use!
