Montana Wildfire Awareness Week
Celebrate Wildfire Awareness Week!
Wildfire Awareness Week will be held in Montana from June 3-9, 2013. This years’ message encourages homeowners to take simple steps to minimize the negative impacts of wildland fire. During Wildfire Awareness Week organizations and agencies across the state will be hosting events and activities to raise awareness about wildland fire safety, preparedness, mitigation, and prevention.

For the last five years, the Governor’s Office of Community Service has been calling on all Montanans to get Fire Ready! This year, funding is available to help support wildland fire preparedness training, events, and one-time community-based wildfire preparedness projects.
Up to $2,000 per project is available along with Fire Ready Montana resources to help organizations encourage preparedness and mitigation in their communities. To learn more about this funding opportunity, click here.
