Firewise USA

The Firewise USA recognition program of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has empowered neighbors to work together in reducing their wildfire risk. Using a six-step process Indian Valley developed a strategic action plan that guides and encouraged neighbors to become active participants in building a safer place to live.  Benefits include living in a community more likely to survive a wildfire, eligibility for fuel reduction grants, and potential discounts on homeowners insurance.

Scientific research has shown the effectiveness and benefits of implementing the Firewise USA wildfire mitigation concepts across individual property boundaries and throughout communities like ours.

To keep our Firewise status current; we need to document the time and/or money we spend on our home and property for the purpose of reducing the probability of wildfire loss. Please fill out and return the Indian Valley Firewise Activities Recording Sheet
