Our Free Firewise Assessments can take up to an hour and include:

- Important home ignition risks
- Easy steps to reduce threat of unnecessary losses
- Firewise funding opportunities
- Free Address Sign to help firefighters find your home
In addition to our free Firewise Assessments, the SCD offers free Technical Assistance in all our departments. This means that a Forester or other SCD staff member can meet with you on your property, on the phone, or in our office to discuss your natural resource concerns and share their expertise. There is no charge for technical assistance. This is a great service to take advantage of before or after a fire. Call 509-535-7274 to make an appointment.
