The Firewise Communities program offers a series of practical steps that individuals and communities can take to protect themselves and their property from risk of wildfire. The Firewise vision is that, through homeowner preparedness and community planning, wildfires can occur without catastrophic loss of lives, property, and natural resources.

This year the Eureka Firewise Committee will be incorporating a 5K race into the event that will happen right before the Firewise Event on May 4, 2018. We are still working out the details on the time, start and end points, but would like to invite you to walk or run the 5K. Registration for the race will be set up at the Fairgrounds prior to the race and all of the proceeds from the race will go to our local Diamond Mountain FFA chapter. We will have a flyer and more details on the 5K in the next few weeks.
