Our Firewise Certification has been renewed.
The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Firewise USA® program teaches people how to adapt to living with wildfire and encourages neighbors to work together and take action now to prevent losses.
In order to receive designation as a Firewise Community, the Aukum Fairplay Fire Safe Council completed a risk assessment of the homes and businesses in their community, developed an action plan to address the identified risks and demonstrated investments in educational outreach vegetation removal during the last year. Earning the designation as a Firewise Community demonstrates their commitment to protecting the community from wildfire, helps guide future activities and provides support for potential funding opportunities.
