Wildfire Community Preparedness Day: Accomplish Something Great!
The 2nd Annual NationalWildfire Community Preparedness Day(Wildfire Preparedness Day) is scheduled for Saturday, May 2, 2015. Commit a couple of hours or the entire day to making your community more wildfire resilient with a Wildfire Prep Day project.
Your efforts will help raise local wildfire awareness, encourage neighborhood collaboration, and bring people together to work on projects. These projects can help protect homes, neighborhoods and entire communities from future wildfire risk even or lessen current post-fire impacts.
On May 2nd, residents of all ages are invited to participate in local projects that reduce the risk of wildfire damage to their homes and increase preparedness in their neighborhoods. Prep Day projects can range from a short time commitment up to an entire day and can be undertaken by individuals, families or groups.
