Today, the Fire Adapted Communities Coalition released its, “Guide to Fire Adapted Communities.”  It serves as a beneficial go-to reference document that puts in clear language for communities and local residents the FAC concept and the role they can each play in preparedness. FACRG14 Cover

The reference guide offers recent case studies and outlines considerations local groups can take to increase awareness and affect change in local wildfire preparedness understanding.  The guide also provides actionable collaboration and outreach guidance; considerations for the surrounding environment; planning and regulatory approaches; details on preparing neighborhoods and homes for wildfire; and lists available resources for success.   Being a Fire Adapted Community means identifying roles and coordinating with others across levels and participants.  

We encourage all to learn about the roles they can play in preparedness and steps they can take to work with fellow residents on the common threat of wildfire.  Please visit the resources page on to learn more or download the guide from here.
