Focus on Fire: Wildfires
More and more people are making their homes in woodland settings – in or near forests, rural areas, or remote mountain sites.  There, homeowners enjoy the beauty of the environment but face the very real danger of wildfire.

Every year across our Nation, after a major wildfire, some homes survive — while many others do not.  Those that survive almost always do so because their owners had prepared for the eventuality of fire, which is an inescapable force of nature in fire-prone wildland areas.

Said in another way – if it's predictable, it's preventable!
Reduce your risk by preparing now – before wildfire strikes.  Visit the USFA Web site for tips on making your home fire safe, inside and out.
