About Firewise

Firewise logoAbout the Firewise Communities Program 
Brush, grass and forest fires don't have to be disasters. NFPA's Firewise Communities Program encourages local solutions for safety by involving homeowners in taking individual responsibility for preparing their homes from the risk of wildfire. Firewise is a key component of Fire Adapted Communities – a collaborative approach that connects all those who play a role in wildfire education, planning and action with comprehensive resources to help reduce risk.  Is your home Firewise?

Why was the Bainbridge Island Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) created? The CWPP was created to solve a problem:  How do we maintain the amenities of our region's natural beauty while minimizing the risk of a wildfire disaster?  Developing a CWPP is the first step toward more extensive mitigation efforts. View the Presentation

What is the Bainbridge Island Community Wildfire Protection PlanIn 2010 the Bainbridge Island Fire Department and Peninsula College worked together to develop a wildfire protection plan for our community.  The purpose of the plan is to provide a consolidated reference document and framework that enables local, state, and federal agencies to identity hazard areas and establish effective mitigation strategies that will reduce wildfire risk to life, property and resources. View the Plan
