FireSafe Helena

People living in Helena’s wildland-urban interface can and must take primary responsibility for wildfire safety actions around their home.  Through a community assistance grant from the city of Helena, TCFSWG will be launching a new risk assessment and education program in July-2023.  The program will offer free home ignition zone assessments and a variety of outreach and education programs.  Property owners are encouraged to submit an application for an assessment. Stay tuned for more exciting information! 

FireSafe Helena offers free home ignition zone assessments to evaluate and identify potential risks and vulnerabilities around the home and property that may increase the liklihood or risk of ignition during a wildfire.  The assessment provides recommendations for guiding mitigation efforts and investments in measures like defensible space, fire-resistant construction materials, and vegetation management that should be implemented BEFORE a wildfire.  Sign-up for yours today! 

By understanding risks homeowners can take appropriate actions to enhance their safety!
