What is “FIREWISE COMMUNITIES/USA”?
Resident involvement is the cornerstone of the FIREWISE COMMUNITIES/USA RECOGNITION PROGRAM. As participants in the program, you and your neighbors will learn how to decrease the risk of losing your homes and to best protect yourselves in the event of wildfire. The Program draws on a community’s spirit, its resolve, and its willingness to take responsibility for reducing wildfire risks by providing the resources needed to achieve both a high level of protection against wildland/urban interface fire and ecosystem balance.
The Program utilizes a three-legged template:
How can Steiner Ranch become a recognized FIREWISE COMMUNITY?
It begins with YOU. Go to www.firewise.org/usa and become familiar with the steps to become a FIREWISE COMMUNITY, then the association office to let staff know you’re interested in participating in the Firewise Committee.

prevention and would like to be of service to your community, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
