Plans are underway for this year’s Nevada Wildfire Awareness Month, May 1 – 31. We encourage you to “Improve Your Odds – Prepare For Wildfire“. Keep an eye on the Wildfire Awareness Page and calendar of events to learn more as plans are finalized.
A good way to start is to participate in National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day by holding a community event on May 2nd. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is pleased to announce that State Farm®, the largest home insurer in the United States, has provided funding for sixty-five $500 project funding awards to implement projects on May 2. State Farm has a long history of proactive wildfire safety education to its policyholders in high-risk regions and NFPA is proud to partner with State Farm on this national wildfire safety campaign.
Applying for a project funding award is easy and takes only a few minutes! But hurry…application deadline is March 6th, 2015.
You must create a brief description of the proposed project you or your group will undertake and complete on May 2, 2015, Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, to reduce the risk of wildfire or the impact of a recent wildfire, or advance preparedness for wildfire in your neighborhood.
