It's not too late to nominate your colleagues for recognition of their outstanding wildfire mitigation efforts! The Wildfire Mitigation Awards were established in 2014 to acknowledge and applaud the great wildfire safety activities going on throughout the U.S. These awards are the highest national honor one can receive for outstanding work and significant program impact in wildfire preparedness and mitigation.


The 2016 Wildfire Mitigation Awards are sponsored by the International Association of Fire Chiefs, National Association of State Foresters, National Fire Protection Association, and the U.S. Forest Service. There are three award categories, which include:

    • Fire Adapted Communities Fire Service Leadership

    • Wildfire Mitigation Innovation

    • Community Wildfire Preparedness Pioneer

Winners of the awards will be honored at the March 2016 IAFC Wildland-Urban Interface Conference in Reno, Nevada, with a special presentation. 

Submit nominations by November 6, 2015, by visiting www.stateforesters.org/mitigation. Bree Willging of the International Association of Fire Chiefs is happy to take questions about the awards.&#0160;</div>
