The latest issue of NFPA Journal highlights recent efforts by NFPA's Wildland Fire Operations Division, particularly an array of timely blog posts its team produced during the Black Forest Fire, the most destructive wildfire in Colorado history in terms of number of homes destroyed.

For instance, the blog, Fire Break, provided access to a digital map tracking the wildfire's movement and resources on mitigation, preparedness, and evacuation. The Journal article also gives a rundown on Colorado's Wildfire Preparedness Day of Service in May, which linked volunteers with community service projects.
