Wildfire Community Preparedness Day

The annual Wildfire Community Preparedness Day is coming up in May. It’s not too early to start spreading the word!

Wildfire Community Preparedness Day is a national day of community action towards wildfire readiness and risk reduction. “Since the inception of National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, NFPA and State Farm have partnered together to give communities an opportunity to apply for $500 to fund their wildfire risk reduction activities. The deadline has passed for 2019 but if you didn’t apply, we still encourage you to hold a Preparedness Day event this May!

"We had a very busy May 6 fire fuel reduction project. Approx. 6 tons of dry trees, grasses, shrubs, etc were removed and mulched to be used along the borders to further reduce our fire risks. We are very grateful for the funding that allowed us to make our community a more fire resistant and safer place to live."
Diane "Maka'ala" Kanealii, Executive Director, Kailapa Community Association
