Napa Firewise has been hard at work to mitigate wildfires in Napa County.

For a look at the implementation of projects, view our calendar.

The National Fire Protection Association estimates that more than 30,000 homes have been lost to wildfire since the 1970s. Federal taxpayers have paid out an estimated $40 billion in suppression, costs, while the insurance industry has paid claims in excess of $10 billion. In 2003, the Cedar fire in San Diego County recorded over 2,000 homes destroyed, nearly 300,000 acres burned and 16 lives lost. The total acres burned are nearly equivalent to the total acres in Napa County. Napa County is especially vulnerable to fire given its vast wildland areas, large amounts of fire-prone vegetation and windswept terrain. It’s just a matter of time before Napa County has a major wildfire.
