Wildfire Preparedness Resources

 Extreme wildfire danger in Sandia Heights: Protect your home!

The Wildfire Preparedness Planning Committee is offering homeowner wildfire hazard assessments. Wildfire Network, a 501(c)(3) organization, comes to your street/neighborhood and walks a group of neighbors around 5–10 properties, pointing out risks and discussing ways to mitigate them for each of the homes. Wildfire Network accepts tax-deductible donations for this service. Check them out at


Get to know your neighbors and protect your home at the same time. Call SHHA Board Member Judy Durzo to help you arrange a neighborhood assessment: 797-8540.
