Firewise is a program that encourages communities to create conditions that reduce wildfire intensity to help prevent home ignitions. It is a program of the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and is administered locally through assistance of the Scottsdale Fire Department, in partnership with Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management (ADFFM).
There are five key steps to receiving Firewise community certification. Per NFPA, a community must create a Firewise Committee and/or Board, complete a community hazard assessment, create and submit a Firewise plan, hold an annual Firewise event and make a minimum investment per household in local wildfire mitigation.
