Be Firewise, Big Lake.

Community (Reposted from an earlier article).

Vlad K. submitted this: With the lengthening of the days, it's time to start considering ways to prepare for the coming Wildfire Season. These are the warm, dry days between the snow and ice melting, and the greening of Alaska. This article will look at ways to help you make your home, and your community, safe from wildfires.

What is FireWise?

FireWise is a program which helps people learn what they can do to protect their homes and families and live compatibly with wildfire. Homeowners are strongly encouraged to prepare before a wildfire.

Wildfires Happen, Be Prepared.
