Are you a leader, an innovator or a pioneer? The new Wildfire Mitigation Award has been created just for you! Please nominate yourself, your organization or a worthy colleague for any of three categories of this prestigious award sponsored by NFPA, the National Association of State Foresters, and the International Association of Fire Chiefs.

The three award designations include the Fire Adapted Community Fire Service Leadership Award, the Wildfire Mitigation Innovation Award, and the Community Wildfire Preparedness Pioneer Award. Fire departments, community organizations, forestry agencies and other such groups are welcome to nominate a wide variety of activities and programs for these awards, showing impact at the local, regional or national level.

The awards will be presented to winners at the IAFC WUI Conference in Reno, Nevada, in March.On behalf of the awards committee, I hope to see many nominations and a full slate of award winners come spring.
