From the text ... 'A fire adapted community accepts wildfire as part of the natural landscape and takes responsibility for its risk. Community members understand the risk and have proactively implemented collaborative mitigation actions to successfully survive fire. Those actions address resident and home safety, neighborhoods, businesses, infrastructure, forests, parks, open space, and other community assets. Doing so reduces risk, damage, and costs.'
