SFA students receive Firewise Recognition
In a presentation on April 19, 2011, Stephen F. Austin State University students were recognized with a national level award from Firewise Communities/USA. Students in the Student Association of Fire Ecology (SAFE) recognized the wildfire dangers the university campus possesses, and set forth in an effort to mitigate those risks. The Firewise Communities program is designed to empower communities to take proactive measures to protect themselves from the dangers of wildfire. Currently there are 36 recognized communities within the State of Texas, and SFASU is the first university in the nation to receive the prestigious award.
