Napa Organizations Join Forces to Protect the Community from Wildfire


Napa, CA (March 24, 2023) – The Napa Valley Grapegrowers (NVG), Napa Valley Vintners (NVV), CAL FIRE/Napa County Fire, and Napa Firewise are partnering again on a communitywide Fire Resources Fair on April 11. This annual fair brings together members of the wine industry, Napa residents, community organizations and local businesses to learn how they can help prevent or mitigate wildfires. The Fair will be open to the public at the Napa Valley Expo and will be complimentary to attend.

“When facing communitywide challenges like wildfire risks, we are strongest when we all work together. This fair is about increasing awareness of services and access to resources that help prevent fires and keep us all safer during fire events. It’s a pleasure to team up again with our partners at Napa Valley Vintners, Napa Firewise, and CAL FIRE/Napa County Fire,” said Molly Moran Williams, Industry and Community Relations Director for the Napa Valley Grapegrowers. 

Attendees will have access to over 45 exhibitors with resources on fire preparedness, creating defensible space, innovative fire-resistant products, non-profit and county services, and more.

“Education is the first line of defense when building fire resilient communities,” said Erick Hernandez, spokesperson for CAL FIRE/ Napa County Fire, “and being able to bring local government and industry experts to provide education and services is instrumental.”
