Munds Park’s surrounding Forest enhances the beauty and solitude of this tranquil community but also adds a high threat of destruction from a wildfire. In, 2010 a group of dedicated community members organized to form an alliance against this threat. This group opted to pursue achieving FIREWISE Communities USA status. FIREWISE Communities USA is a national organization that is dedicated to reducing the danger from wildfires to communities throughout the United States. Munds Park achieved this status in 2011. The Munds Park Firewise Community has developed a plan that will significantly reduce the potential from wildfire once it is completed. This plan is updated annually and will need community support and compliance to be completed.
