Title: Community advisor - firewise

Author: Reitz, Richard D.;

Date: 2003

Source: In: Proceedings of the Society of American Foresters. 2003 National Convention. Bethesda, MD. pp. 63-72.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The old model of individual homeowners and neighborhoods depending solely on government provided fire fighting resources is gone. Recent wildland fires have demonstrated that community firefighting resources are easily outpaced when multiple structures are burning simultaneously. The cure is to move most structure protection responsibility to the homeowner and community. Effort can be made, and maintained, today to reduce future risk.
