ABSTRACT

Coffee Break Training - Community Risk Reduction: A Communitywide Approach to Preparedness   [open pdf - 440KB]

"Every year, thousands of wildfires burn millions of acres across the United States. Wildfires do not recognize property or jurisdictional lines - there are no boundaries. It's not if, but when, the next wildfire will threaten your Wildland Urban Interface community. More people live in places where wildfire is a risk, but communities are also getting smarter at how to better adapt homes, landscapes and other community assets to fire. Living in an FAC [Fire Adapted Ccommunity] means you are prepared for the next wildfire. Is your community fire-adapted?"
