Research tells us that the majority of homes ignite during a wildfire as a result of embers or small flames. There are steps that homeowners can take to reduce the risk, with the most important efforts occurring on and immediately around the home. Come and learn how to make your home and community Firewise with landscaping and home maintenance techniques.

Join N.C. Cooperative Extension, Caldwell County Center, Carolina Land and Lakes RC&D, and the NC Forest Service for a class sharing tips on making your home landscape more resilient in the event of nearby fires. We will also have a representative of a local Firewise Community share experiences with the national Firewise USA program.
