NFPA's Molly Mowery recently hosted a panel of wildfire experts including Vince Urbina, Sheryl Page and Ron Biggers on Aspen’s (Colorado) GrassRoots Community Network. Their discussion focused on Fire Adapted Communities and related wildfire topics such as the role fire plays in our natural landscape and the mitigation work done before and after the Waldo Canyon Fire in Colorado Springs.

Looking for ways your community can start preparing for wildfire? The panel also provided examples of mitigation projects and programs that a number of communities are already engaged in, in their efforts to become more fire adapted.
