Firewise

Welcome to the Firewise Page of the GACC's Wildfire Preparedness Committee

This page is intended for the over 1,500 residences in the Avenues that are located within the Salt Lake Fire Department's Firewise Candidate Community. These homes are especially vulnerable to the threats and risks of wildfire due to their proximity to the fire-prone “Wildland Urban Interface” (WUI) see graphic. It is important for residents in this area to understand how fire can damage their homes and property and how they can lessen the possibility of damage by taking extra steps to protect their homes.  If each of us does our part to reduce risk, we can collectively create a safer, more resilient neighborhood.
