Join the NVFC’s Wildland Fire Assessment Program Advocate Network

The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) is seeking qualified individuals with backgrounds in wildfire mitigation, safety, and instruction to join a new corps of qualified instructors to help teach the Wildland Fire Assessment Program (WFAP) curriculum and advocate for mitigation and safety in wildfire-prone regions across the U.S.

We’re looking for a variety of folks from across different topographies since wildfires look different among forests and grasslands/prairies. Click here for an overview of the Network with additional information. Instructor stipends and travel reimbursements are available.

If you are interested in joining this Network, fill out the NVFC subject matter expert form by January 31 to be considered. A kick-off meeting and advocate training will be held in Provo, UT, at the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy March 8-9. All approved advocates will be invited to attend and the NVFC will cover travel expenses.
