The Fire Adapted Communities Coalition has released the Guide to Fire Adapted Communities. It serves as a beneficial go-to reference document that puts in clear language for communities and local residents the Fire Adapted Communities concept and the role they can each play in preparedness.
The reference guide offers recent case studies and outlines considerations anyone can take to increase awareness and affect change in local wildfire preparedness understanding. The guide also outlines collaboration and outreach guidance; considerations for the surrounding environment; planning and regulatory approaches; preparing neighborhoods and homes for wildfire; and available resources for success.
Everyone is encouraged to learn about the roles they can play in preparedness and steps they can take to work with fellow residents on the common threat of wildfire.
