National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day is May 3;communities encouraged to sign up now

  • Friday, March 14, 2014

In an effort to promote wildfire preparedness, Midway Fire Rescue encourages all communities to participate in the 2014 National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day.

“A simple commitment of a couple of hours or an entire day will contribute to reducing your community’s wildfire risk,” said Midway Chief Doug Eggiman. “We encourage you to challenge your friends, your family, relatives, faith-based group or youth organization to develop a project and join others throughout the nation in making big changes.”

By signing up, communities will help raise wildfire awareness, promote collaboration and bring neighbors together to work on projects that can help protect homes and neighborhoods from future wildfire risk or current post-fire impacts.

Funding for community projects may be available. For more information, visit or contact Todd Blomdahl, fire marshal at Midway, (843) 545-3610.
