Fire Prevention Programs

The Forestry Division participates in several nationally recognized programs that guide home and landowners with wildfire prevention and preparation. The Forestry Division works with local, state, federal, and tribal partners on these efforts to reach every corner of the state. The Forestry Division is also responsible for providing critical information during wildfires on state and private lands.

District liaisons work with communities in their area to develop individual wildland fire prevention and preparedness plans. Interagency programs, such as Ready, Set, Go!, Smokey Bear, Living with Fire, Fire Adapted Communities, and Firewise USA®, allow communities to tailor programs to fit their population size and local landscape. Links to these and other programs are below.
