The Firewise national office is working hard to establish the first week of May as community preparedness week with Saturday, May 7 designated as Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, and a $500 grant is be available to communities that participate.
The 2016 Wildfire Community Preparedness Day campaign includes 125 project funding award opportunities in the amount of $500 each for implementing projects on May 7 that reduce wildfire risk or post-fire impacts.
Project funding awards are open to everyone and potential applicants include individuals, neighborhoods, youth groups, homeowner associations, civic organizations, fire departments, park/open space and forestry agencies; it is not a requirement that applicants be part of an active Firewise Community.
The Preparedness Day event is also an excellent opportunity for Firewise participants to meet their annual Firewise Day/Event renewal requirement.
The landing page for this year’s campaign is www/WildfirePrepDay.org and the Twitter hashtag is #WildfirePrepDay.
