To take Firewise to the community level, attend city meetings and talk with your local Urban Planners as theyconsiderspreading urban growth into natural areas. Another way to get information into the community is to organize a yard waste chipping day. Working with neighbors to thin out overgrown vegetation and to share expenses, makes wildfire preparedness affordable as well as your neighborhood fire resistant.
If your neighborhood would like to participate on the national level of Firewise, visit Firewise Communities USA Recognition Program.
