The just released 2018 edition of the NFPA Educational Messages Desk Reference for the Fire Service and Fire and Life Safety Educators includes a new chapter devoted to messaging on safety from wildfires. The chapter includes three sections–Wildfire Prevention, Protecting Homes from Wildfires, and Community-wide Wildfire Safety–and is designed to give the fire service and educators the core messaging they need to address the public on these topics. NFPA’s Wildfire Division provides resources to residents and stakeholders, including infographics, tip sheets, videos, toolkits, training, and reports. The Desk Reference chapter is another tool designed to help reduce risk from wildfires.
