Navajo County Emergency Management & Preparedness
Navajo County in partnership with the local fire districts, state forestry and other agencies are working together to promote Firewise communities. We learned all too well what major devastation a wildfire can cause and with the anniversary of the Rodeo-Chedeski right around the corner it is a reminder that we live, work and play in the wildland urban interface (WUI).
We met with representatives from two communities (Mogollon Airpark and High Country Pines) in the Heber-Overgaard area to explain what is required to become a Firewise recognized community and are looking for other neighborhoods, associations or HOA who are interested.
Below is the link to what it takes to become a Firewise recognized community. Our state and local fire partners are trained assessors and the community and home assessments are free to the homeowners. We would absolutely love to get more communities involved so they can contact me either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (928) 524-4000 or stop by the County complex on Mogollon and pick up a brochure with my card stapled to it.
