Burland has become recognized as a Firewise community national fire protection association and with that designation we have the ability to apply for federal funds to assist in the effort to mitigate against fires that would threaten not only timber but also our dwellings.
Citizen involvement is the cornerstone of a Firewise Community.
As participants in this effort you and your neighbors will learn how to decrease the risk of losing your homes and to best protect yourselves in the event of wildfire.
Within wildland/urban interface areas, firefighters lack the resources to defend every home that is threatened during extreme wildfires.
Communities whose residents take steps to reduce their vulnerability have a greater chance of surviving a wildfire.
A Firewise Community offers residents in fire-prone areas a unique opportunity to implement Firewise practices specially tailored to individual and community needs.
