If you're like me, you're probably still wondering how we celebrated Thanksgiving and then dove straight into "holiday shopping" mode this past weeked! But alas, here we are ... the second day of December! I've got a lot to do to prepare and as a potential Firewise community, so do you! So, as part of your holiday "to do" list this season, amidst the baking and the wrapping, the parties and the shopping, don't forget to check one very important item off your list: "Renew Firewise Community Recognition Status!"
After a year of working on wildfire mitigation projects around your home and neighborhood, hosting your Firewise Day, putting in countless volunteer hours and talking up wildfire safety to everyone you meet, don't let the hustle and bustle of this holiday season prevent you from filling out your Firewise renewal form and getting that recognition you and your neighbors so deserve.
The deadline to renew your recognition status (by sending in your application) is Tuesday, December 31! Don't know how? We've made the process even easier with our updated online renewal system so there's no excuse; flex those fingers and get typing! Maybe you're old school and still like the feel of a pen and paper. Don't worry, we've got you covered. Our Firewise communities recognition page has all of the information you need, including a downloadable application that you can fill out and return by mail (or sleigh if you give Santa enough notice!).
As the year comes to a close, we look forward to celebrating our wildfire safety successes with all of our Firewise communities so please, don't wait. Get your paperwork in and join the Firewise family! You and your neighbors will be glad you did!
