Local councils can make communities safer and better places to live by:
º Developing an emergency preparedness plan for the community before a wildfire occurs. This proactive measure minimizes loss of life, property, homes, businesses, natural and historic areas, and other valuable assets at risk of being destroyed by wildfire.
º Providing an opportunity for community residents and organizations to voice concerns about public safety issues, and protect social and economic interests in the community.
º Increasing the chances that homes in the community will continue to be insured. Insurance companies can assess the potential liability of a community’s ability to survive a wildfire before writing insurance policies. They know your community’s fire risk. In some areas, Fire Safe Councils have actually involved insurers in increasing community safety, which has resulted in continued commitments by insurance companies to keep their book of business in town.
