The nine sites being honored are among the first participants in the program’s volunteer grassroots local risk reduction model. En 2002, Firewise Communities/USA was launched as a program that provided an opportunity for residents to work collaboratively with state forestry agencies and fire departments to reduce wildfire risks and increase their overall preparedness for future wildfires. Today, there are nearly 1,400 communities in 39 states participating in the recognition program.
