Because May is officially recognized as National Wildfire Awareness Month, the Energy Central Community Team wanted to put out a call-for-submissions from the community to ask: what is your organization doing to build awareness for wildfire prevention? 

Wildfires are unfortunately becoming more common with each passing year, and they are among the highest areas of concern for utilities operating in wildfire-prone areas of the country. As such, a multitude of actions are regularly taken at power providers these days:

  • Implementing new technologies to prevent, minimize, and dampen wildfires
  • Educating community members on what they can do to help prevent wildfires
  • Planning for emergency response in the event wildfires occure

And more.


We want to recognize the importance of Wildfire Awareness all month long, so here's how you can participate. Write up a quick post about what your organization is focusing on this month with regards to Wildfire Awareness, and send it in to us at

We'll put the relevant submissions together in a digest to be sent around to the Energy Central Community towards the end of May to ensure that we're sharing our lessons learned and best practices when it comes to Wildfire Awareness. It takes all of us to move this important area forward, so join the conversation today!
