While wildfires rage in southern California, the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes-FLASH, Inc. is reminding homeowners that free wildfire safety resources are available on-line and by phone.

Tips and tools on how to protect a home from wildfires are available at www.blueprintforsafety.org or toll-free at 877-221-SAFE (7233).

Our goal is to empower the homeowner, no matter where they live, with knowledge to help strengthen their home and safeguard their family.”
