About the Firewise Communities Program
Brush, grass and forest fires don’t have to be disasters. NFPA’s Firewise Communities Program encourages local solutions for safety by involving homeowners in taking individual responsibility for preparing their homes from the risk of wildfire. Firewise is a key component of Fire Adapted Communities – a collaborative approach that connects all those who play a role in wildfire education, planning and action with comprehensive resources to help reduce risk.

The program is co-sponsored by the USDA Forest Service, the US Department of the Interior, and the National Association of State Foresters.

National Fire Plan

A National Fire Plan has been developed through cooperation of all federal agencies. Check out the National Fire Plan webpage.

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones)

Flying drones within or near wildfires without permission could cause injury or death to firefighters, and hamper their ability to protect lives, property, and natural cultural resources.
