2021 Update from Firewise USA
Like all of you, we are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and trying to figure out what the new normal looks like. What we do know, is that wildfires will continue to happen and pose a threat to homes and communities regardless. The drought this year doesn’t make it any easier.
With that in mind, we want to thank you all for the work you do to keep your neighbors and community members engaged in preparing for wildfires. It is so important that people continue to do their annual spring-cleaning activities and actions that they can, while following local safety precautions.
While 2021 renewals are not due until November 20th – some 10 months away – we will be monitoring conditions and renewal submissions throughout the year to see if that date needs to be adjusted.
There will be two Chipper Days this year, July 17 and September 18. Remember hours worked and money spent by individuals on their own property count toward the whole community.
Firewise USA is using this year to really drive home the importance of work done around the home and in the 0-5-foot space. Science tells us there are a lot of simple tasks that make an impact on the chance of a home surviving a wildfire.
The form that we used to submit to Firewise USA has not changed for 2021 and is found in the drop down under Firewise.
