Ensure that your family is prepared for a wildfire by completing the Ready, Set, Go! incident action plan

Contact your local fire department for free-of-charge fire mitigation advising on how you can make your home or business more resilient in the event of a wildfire

 

Examples of proactive measures to promote fire safety that other counties have enacted:

Two important federal bills that would promote wildfire safety:

  • Shelter Act - A bipartisan bill sponsored by Senator Bennet (D) and Senator Cassidy (R) to provide tax credits for families and businesses who complete fire mitigation measures on their property
  • Civilian Climate Corps - This bill would put hundreds of thousands of Americans back to work by training and hiring a new generation of conservation and wildfire resiliency workers who would undertake projects to improve forest health and reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires.
