Fire-Adapted Communities

A fire-adapted community (FAC) collaborates to identify its wildfire risk and works collectively on actionable steps to reduce its risk of loss. This work protects property and increases the safety of firefighters and residents.

Creating a FAC is a part of the National Cohesive Wildfire Management Strategy to keep communities safer during a wildfire event.
