NFPA and State Farm announce launch of project funding award application period for 2017 Wildfire Community Preparedness Day

Every year, brush, grass and forest fires burn across the U.S., and more people are living where wildfires are a real risk. It’s not a matter of if it will happen, but when will a community experience a wildfire threat. To help address this wildfire challenge, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and State Farm® are announcing the launch of the project funding awards application period for its fourth national Wildfire Community Preparedness Day on May 6, 2017, which helps communities prepare for and reduce their risk of wildfire damage.
