Help the Doon be Firewise

I want to help Bonny Doon become Firewise

What is a Firewise Community and how do you, or more properly, the National Fire Protection Association, recognize one?

A Firewise Community is one that has acknowledged and assessed the risk it faces from wildfire, developed an action plan to mitigate that risk, and is implementing that plan with community events, supported by ongoing community investment in the plan's implementation.

Formal Firewise recognition requires an on-going, community-wide commitment, albeit an easy one. There are five steps, and, in carrying out our mission over the past 5 years, two of the steps are already complete, and a third is trivial, so all Bonny Doon really needs is broad community involvement.
