Help Your Community Be Prepared!

Wildfires can occur anywhere with the potential to destroy homes, businesses, infrastructure, natural resources, and agriculture. Participating in Wildfire Community Preparedness Day, an America’s PrepareAthon! partner event, will help you prepare before wildfires happen.

How to Participate

  • Take Action: Conduct a drill, exercise or other preparedness activity that will help your family or community become more prepared. Performing simple wildfire mitigation activities on your property, creating a family communication plan, or going through evacuation routes are great ways to practice wildfire preparedness.
  • Be Counted: Register your 2015 Wildfire Community Preparedness Day trainings, drills, exercises, workshops, community discussions, and other preparedness activities on the America’s PrepareAthon! web site and add your efforts to the Put Your Project on the Map feature.
  • Spread the Word: Show your support for this grassroots campaign and your commitment to wildfire preparedness. Spread the word within your community and take advantage of the wildfire preparedness logos, web banners, digital invitations, posters, and how-to guides available through the America’s PrepareAthon! web site and in the Wildfire Community Preparedness Day Resources section.

Be Smart. Take Part. Prepare for wildfire safety. Participate in Wildfire Community Preparedness Day and show your support for America’s PrepareAthon!
