DNR gearing up for fire season in two different ways; can you participate?

rp_fire_prevention_570pxThere are two different ways DNR is working to give you and your community the tools you need to prepare for wildfire and to bring awareness to those who don’t know about living in wildfire country.

First, DNR is encouraging local communities to participate in the National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day on May 7. Neighbors working together to prepare for wildfire is simply smart and can reduce the wildfire threat to your community. Preparing for wildfire gives us a chance to get ready and, as a bonus, connect with our neighbors.

Can’t fit in any extra time to work with your community? At least take these easy steps to prepare your home now. Whether working on your own or with your neighbors, you can always learn more about how to live with fire.

Also, in conjunction with National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, DNR is participating with seven other western states to proclaim the month of May Wildfire Awareness Month.  Throughout May, DNR will share more wildfire preparation tips on Ear to the Ground, Facebook and Twitter.

Join DNR and participate in these campaigns, and help your family prepare for wildfire.
