The Wildland Fire Assessment Program is a joint effort by the U.S. Forest Service and the National Volunteer Fire Council to provide volunteer firefighters and non-operational personnel, such as Fire Corps members, with training on how to conduct assessments for homes located in the Wildland Urban Interface. This is the first program that prepares volunteers to evaluate a home and provide residents with recommendations to protect their property from wildfires in order to become a more fire-adapted community.
When wildland fires are intentionally set, the need for competent professional fire investigations is amplified. Wildland fires require specialty trained fire investigation experts to thoroughly investigate these incidents.
The National Wildland Coordinating Group’s Wildland Fire Investigation Subcommittee creates and maintains national training programs for arson awareness and scene protection, wildland fire investigation training, and wildland arson case management.
