Fire Adapted Communities

Fire Adapted Communities (FAC) are neighborhoods located in wildfire-prone areas that can survive wildfire with little or no assistance from firefighters. During a wildfire, FACs reduce the potential for loss of human life and injury, minimize damage to homes and infrastructure and reduce firefighting costs. This program offers information, promotional materials and articles that can be customized for your area. This program also offers videos and a display system that is available for use at community events, meetings, etc. Contact us to request any graphic files or for more information. Begin with the interactive program below and explore the additional program materials listed underneath.
