  FAC video panel - 6.12.15

Recently, a group of wildland fire mitigation practitioners met as a panel to discuss how fire adapted communities are created at a cable TV station in Aspen, CO. The result was an almost hour-long video that highlights the path to becoming more fire adapted.

The panel included: Ron Biggers, Deputy Fire Marshal for the Glenwood Springs Fire Department; Molly Mowery, with the Watershed Center and FAC Learning Network; Pam Wilson, the Executive Director of Firewise of SW CO; Courtney Peterson, the Wildfire Mitigation Education Coordinator and State Firewise Liaison with the CO State Forest Service and Bill Kight, USFS Public Affairs Officer, White River National Forest.

The group provides insightful information on the stakeholders, tools, resources and qualities that motivate and develop Fire Adapted Communities. The video is an excellent way to learn how to grow and develop actions that lead to becoming more fire adapted.
