The Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) work together to implement the Firewise Communities/USA® program in Colorado.

Firewise Communities logoFirewise Communities/USA® is a national recognition program that provides instructional resources to inform people how to adapt to living with wildfire and encourages neighbors to work together and take action to reduce their wildfire risk.

The Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) work together to implement the Firewise Communities/USA® program in Colorado. The CSFS provides technical assistance and education to interested landowners, homeowners and communities to help them take action and ownership in preparing their homes against the threat of wildfire.

The Five Steps to be Recognized as a Firewise Community

  1. Form a Firewise board or committee
  2. Obtain a wildfire risk assessment from the CSFS and local fire department and create an action plan
  3. Hold a Firewise event once per year
  4. Invest a minimum of $2 per capita in local Firewise actions for the year
  5. Submit an application to the state Firewise liaison (Courtney.Peterson@colostate.edu)

To learn more about the Firewise Communities/USA recognition program or to fill out an application, visit the National Firewise website.
