What is a firewise community?

The national Firewise USA® recognition program provides a collaborative framework to help neighbors in a geographic area get organized, find direction, and take action to increase the ignition resistance of their homes and community and to reduce wildfire risks at the local level. Any community that meets a set of voluntary criteria on an annual basis and retains an “In Good Standing Status” may identify itself as being a Firewise® Site.   


How we help our community:

  • Robles Firewise promotes effective fire safety by informing those in the community interested in wildfire preparedness and vegetation fuels management

  • We develop educational programs to reduce the risk and hazard associated with wildfires

  • We sponsor educational programs for local residents to reduce the risk of wildfires

  • We coordinate vegetation reduction projects through the “Robles adopt a Roadway program” “Chipper Days” and other sources

  • We develop, support, and promote Firewise USA recognized communities

  • We offer Senior citizen, handicapped and financially burdened volunteer assistance projects
