About Firewise Minnesota
Firewise USA® is a national program helping communities adapt to living with the risk of wildland fire. Lessons learned from previous wildfires have given us the principles you can follow to increase the chances your home will survive a wildfire.
Firewise learning opportunities are free and supported by a team of Firewise Specialists that work with schools, property owners, emergency services, and community leaders to create a
Fire Adapted Minnesota. Grants may be available for fire risk mitigation activities.
Minnesota is unique in offering Firewise in the Classroom, a flexible interdisciplinary curriculum for students in grades 6-12. Students learn about the science, geography, and social science of wildland fire. Students use GIS to develop fire risk data that can be used by their communities.
