Submit a Request to Host Free NVFC Training on Wildland Fire Assessments

The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) will be delivering a limited number of free in-person trainings as part of the Wildland Fire Assessment Program throughout 2013. Interested departments, training academies, or associations should fill out the request form to be considered for the training.

The Wildland Fire Assessment Program course teaches how to perform pre-wildland fire home assessments to mitigate community exposure and decrease the risk of loss of life and property in the wildland-urban interface (WUI). The four-hour course covers topics including understanding the WUI problem, identifying the zone, evaluating the home, and available resources. A supplemental guide and online resource center accompany the course to ensure departments are equipped with the proper information and necessary tools to create fire adapted communities.

Availability for the training is limited and all requests cannot be guaranteed. To be considered for the training, submit your request today at
