The Lake Ozark Fire Protection District has been recognized as a Firewise Communities/USA community. The Firewise Communities program encourages local solutions for wildfire safety by involving homeowners, community leaders, planners, developers, firefighters and other in the effort to protect people and property form wildfire risks.
The program is sponsored by the USDA Forest Service, the US Department of the Interior and the National Association of State Foresters.
To save lives and property from wildfire, NFPA’s Firewise Communities program teaches people how to adapt to living with wildfire and encourages neighbors to work together and take action now to prevent losses. We all have a role to play in protecting ourselves and each other from the risk of wildfire.
If you have any questions on this program, please contact the district office or you can go to www.firewise.org for more information.
