Firewise: Helping Homeowners Prevent Catastrophic Wildfires

The Departments of Agriculture and the Interior are working closely with States and NGOs like the Student Conservation Association to implement the Firewise Program. Firewise encourages homeowners who live near wild lands to take sensible steps to reduce hazardous conditions that promote wildfires near their homes and communities. Since the first workshop, more than 1,800 people from 600 communities and 47 states have been trained in Firewise concepts.
