Fire Adapted Communities Coalition Releases Report & Video on 2012 Colorado Springs Wildfire

The Fire Adapted Communities (FAC) Coalition has released a report, “Lessons from Waldo Canyon” and a companion video, “Creating Fire Adapted Communities: A Case Study from Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon Fire.” The report and video are based on interviews, field visits and tours of the City’s most affected neighborhoods conducted by the FAC Coalition’s assessment team during a three-day visit to the area in July 2012. These resources share the post-fire field investigation and stress the importance of communities becoming fire adapted.

The NVFC is a member of the FAC Coalition. For more information about the Coalition, visit
