with Wildfire Prepardness

We make Forming & Managing Fire Safe Councils
and Firewise Communities Easy

THE NEEDS

Why do communities need help?

After going through the process of starting up and maintaining Fire Safe Councils and Firewise Communities multiple times ourselves, it became quite clear to us that it is a complicated, convoluted bureaucratic process, followed by ongoing maintenance requirements that are not easy to do or manage.

 

The demands, compliance requirements, and ongoing reporting needs from related local, state and federal agencies, require time and resources–something your average volunteer organization lacks. These requirements, although perfectly reasonable and logical, put a tremendous burden and responsibility on small community volunteers–resulting in a deterrence of volunteers and community leadership–and therefore limiting the growth of important community-lead wildfire prevention initiatives.

 

Growing an engaged audience of residents who are willing to learn and take action is not easy. It takes time, methodologies and experience.

 

We at the Wildfire Foundation offer knowledge, services, and proven easy-to-use online solution systems to enable your community to get through the setup, approval and ongoing consulting and maintenance of a Fire Safe Council or Firewise Community.
