Legislation & Planning
Wildfire prevention is a community effort. It starts with proven FireSmart practices for land-planning and building legislation that focuses on fire safety.
When it comes to being FireSmart, education is everything. From landscaping best practices to fire-resilient building materials, learning what you can do today to protect against wildfires can save homes and lives tomorrow.
Whether you’re in the design stage, building, or performing renovations, there are many ways you can help protect your home and community from wildfires.
One of the key ways to mitigate wildfire threats is to manage vegetation on properties in fire-prone areas.
It takes everyone from firefighters to government representatives to homeowners to have the best-laid plans in a worst-case scenario.
Cross training is important both for the safety of wildfire and wildland firefighters and for the effectiveness of wildfire suppression.
FireSmart is a shared responsibility, which means it relies on strong and lasting partnerships.
