Description

The Forest Service's Fire Adapted Communities (FAC) program invests in a wide range of partnerships and programs to promote the mitigation of wildfire threats and impacts to communities. FAC supports Firewise Communities/USA; Ready, Set, Go!; and community wildfire protection plans. FAC staff also leads the national Fire Adapted Communities Coalition, among other efforts. Both prior to and in concert with the development of the National Cohesive Wildfire Management Strategy , FAC program leaders have sought to prioritize effective and innovative ways to accelerate the adoption of best practices in the movement toward fire adapted communities across the Nation.
