Firewise

Firewise is a national program created by the National Fire Protection Association that addresses the risks of homes to wildfire in the wildland/urban interface. It encourages local community-based solutions for wildfire safety, with the goal of reducing home ignition due to wildfire. Firewise emphasizes homeowner responsibility and provides the framework for education dissemination, community partnerships, and local actions that support community wildfire safety efforts. Truckee Fire Protection District is working as a partner with the community to establish Truckee as a nationally recognized Firewise Community.
