The Idaho Firewise Grant Program

Idaho Firewise funds programs for groups engaging in wildfire education.

As more people build in Idaho's forests and rangelands, they become part of the ever-increasing landscape where urban meets wild—the wildland/urban interface (WUI). 

Wildfire Preparedness: Learning the Basics.

People living in the WUI have higher wildfire risk, as well as greater responsibility for the safety of their families, property, pets, and livestock. Learn how to make your home and landscape less vulnerable to ignition from a wildfire. Develop an evacuation plan to ensure the safety of you, your family and your pets and livestock. Discover how you can prevent wildfires and learn more about fire ecology, fire-based ecosystems and how wildfires are managed.

Wildfire Preparedness: Creating a culture. 

One of the many definitions of culture is "the total range of activities and ideas of a group of people with shared values, which are transmitted and reinforced by members of that group." By increasing awareness and encouraging the adoption of a set of accepted principles and practices, Idaho Firewise encourages the increasing culture WUI residents who are wildfire savvy.

Join and share information about wildfire preparedness by participating in the Idaho Firewise Grant and/or Firewise USA™ programs. Visit one of the many Idaho Firewise Demonstration Gardens, increase your communication skills by learning new Terminology and explore more in our Library.
