National Wildfire Awareness Month dedicates the entire month of May to prevention and preparedness. While wildfires may not be prevalent in every state, the responsibility to be aware and alert belongs to all of us
Tillamook Coast Visitors Association and Tillamook County Community Development have partnered to promote the National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) national annual campaign to help prevent wildfire impacts. The NFPA’s Wildfire Community Preparedness Day encourages people and organizations to come together on the first Saturday in May to take action to raise awareness and reduce wildfire risks.
Wildfires across the United States have cost more than 100 lives and more than $40 billion in property losses in just the last three years. That is why it is so important to take steps to improve the wildfire safety of your home and community.
Take the first step by participating in Wildfire Community Preparedness Day. There are simple things you can do in an afternoon or over a weekend that research shows will help your home survive a wildfire. Access our toolkit for tips and ideas here: Wildfire Preparedness Toolkit
