Be Smart about Fire, Health and Safety!

Be Firewise!

 We can all help make the world a safer place by learning more about how and why fires start. NFPA offers dozens of consumer-friendly fact sheets on a wide range of timely and important topics - everything you need to know to keep you, your family, and your neighbors safe from fire and related hazards. 

Fire Adapted Communities

Communities that adapt to wildfire understand the risk and take individual and collective steps to prepare for wildfire. The actions in the larger community and in the landscapes surrounding them will reduce risk to public and firefighter safety, property, critical assets, the economy, and resources. An adapted community is more likely to successfully lower the negative impact of wildfire.

Community Risk Reduction

 It begins with a risk assessment for any given community. That risk assessment involves examining incident data to see what kind of events are popping up most frequently and where. Incident data can help us make informed decisions about deployment models, including how many stations, what type of equipment, and staffing levels to manage call loads. And for the record, deployment of emergency response resources is the backbone of a CRR plan. However, if we focus on emergency response exclusively, we're living up to the old adage: If the only tool in your kit is a hammer, then every problem looks like a nail.
