Mount Hermon is comprised of ten areas and around 500 homes, which makes organizing Mount Hermon into one unified Firewise site a challenging yet achievable task if we have at least two volunteer Steering Committee Members from each area. Here is the link for what is needed to become a Firewise site https://www.nfpa.org/Public-Education/Fire-causes-and-risks/Wildfire/Firewise-USA/Become-a-Firewise-USA-site.
Volunteering for a Steering Committee Member entails developing an action plan for each future Mount Hermon Firewise site, organizing events that count towards yearly continuing education credits and keeping track of the events.
Here is a YouTube video from Fire Safe Marin, which is the gold standard of Firewise sites that shows what street assessments look like https://youtu.be/bGZE35pmddc.
