The Wildland Fire Operations Division is pleased to announce that Lucian Deaton has joined their team as senior project manager. Based at the NFPA field office in Denver, Colorado, Deaton will will be the manager of the public outreach efforts of the Division, including the Firewise Communities and Fire Adapted Communities programs.

NFPA’s Wildland Fire Operations Division works with organizations across the country and around the globe to raise awareness of wildfire and what residents can do to help prevent loss of lives and property in their community.

Before coming to NFPA, Deaton served as the wildland fire program manager for the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), responsible for the development and implementation of the National Ready, Set, Go! (RSG) program in collaboration with the USDA Forest Service and various partners. Previously, he worked in government relations at both IAFC and the National Association of Police Organizations. 

We are excited to have him join the NFPA family, congratulations Lucian!
