Volunteer Time Report

The hours that you as a FireWise Ambassador spend on FireWise activities is vital to the success of our program. This information helps us keep track of program outcomes, report out to our partners, and is used as an in-kind match on some of our grant applications. You can also use these hours as an in-kind match for grant applications for your neighborhood. Beginning in 2013, we are also tracking the hours of residents that perform FireWise activities. As a FireWise Ambassador, you can enter your neighbor's hours or show them how to enter their own time.

Your time can include, but is not limited to:

  • Time spent educating neighbors
  • Time spent traveling to and attending FireWise meetings, Orientation, and workshops
  • Time spent writing a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP)
  • Time spent presenting at an HOA/POA meeting
  • Time spent grant writing
  • Time spent coordinating mitigation projects (using grant money)
  • Time spent preparing mailings
  • Time spent walking your subdivision and discussing mitigation needs with any of our FireWise partners and/or neighbors
  • Time spent getting address signs
  • Time spent maintaining FireWise information on Web sites, blogs, and bulletin boards
  • Time spent researching – CWPPs, mitigation standards, etc.
  • Time spent updating contact info
  • Time YOU (not a contractor) spend mitigating your property

We can also receive credit for your mileage so be sure to track your miles spent driving to meetings, renting mitigation equipment, etc. Estimates are fine.

Your time does not need to be entered by the day. You can put in a start date and in the comments sections, write a note like January – March hours, or 2013 hours, or whatever the case may be.
