Fire Safe Council
Whitmore FIREWISE Neighborhoods
In June of 2018, during the early days of the Whitmore Fire Safe Council, we began the process of researching the FIREWISE Neighborhoods program sponsored by the National Fire Prevention Association. The central idea of the FIREWISE program is to encourage neighbors to help each other & community members to work together towards a common goal of making their community fire safe. As part of the N.F.P.A. FIREWISE program, the Whitmore Fire Safe Council has been hard at work developing new ways to communicate and network with your friends and neighbors in Whitmore as we work to make our community fire-safe. In June of 2019, the process was completed and the community of Whitmore became an officially recognized FIREWISE site. For more information on the FIREWISE program please visit the N.F.P.A. website: www.nfpa.org/Public-Education/Fire-causes-and-risks/Wildfire/Firewise-USA

As part of our FIREWISE program, we have divided the Whitmore area of nearly 155 square miles into 9 individual neighborhoods... This was part of the beginning stages of the phone tree program. We have since set up a Facebook group page for each of the 9 FIREWISE neighborhoods. Please take a moment to review the list below and share it with your friends, family and neighbors here in Whitmore. If you are unsure which neighborhood group to join or who your Resident Leader is, please contact us and we can provide you with that information.
As part of our emergency notification program, we have also created a Facebook Group chat for local emergency notifications. For more information, please click here...
In order to join your neighborhood group to see posts, comment and share, visit our main Facebook page to get started...
You’ll find instructions and a list of each FIREWISE Neighborhood. These groups are meant for use by current residents and landowners in the Whitmore area. These are closed groups, so only members can see the content, posts, comment or share to the group. If you have any questions, problems or suggestions, please feel free to contact us through our main Facebook page, our website, or drop by the Whitmore General Store.
