Community Wildfire Protection Plan
It's a neighborhood that has taken responsibility for planning and enacting activities that make it safer from wildfire, as well as allowing more effective emergency response. A firewise community encourages individual responsibility for safer home construction, design, landscaping and maintenance. Hundreds of communities across the country are participating in the Firewise Community/USA program.
