Blog Post created by mikehazell Employee on Jan 15, 2014


The California Fire Science Consortium is sponsoring its latest "WUI Module" webinar this Thursday, January 16 at 11 am Pacific. Join Molly Mowery, president of Wildfire Planning International, as she discusses actions and strategies that local communities are initiating across the country to be a Fire Adapted Community.  

This webinar discusses tangible and innovative methods in which national Fire Adapted Communities (FAC’s) are moving forward.  Over the last few years, many have been introduced to the term Fire Adapted Communities through national policy and programs.  Many communities have embraced FAC concepts and are displaying positive results on the ground.  What do these efforts look like?  Who is engaged with moving them forward? This presentation will quickly recap FAC’s history, but focus primarily on how ideas are transformed into actions through both national pilot communities and local activities.  Specific examples will be highlighted from the FAC Learning Network, Cohesive Strategy, and other programs.
