The Wildland Fire Leadership Council (WFLC) is currently transitioning to a more involved, transformational and broadened leadership to promote greater collaboration, flexibility and continuity leading to the social, political and cultural change necessary to leverage success and achieve the three goals of the Cohesive Strategy: Resilient Landscapes, Fire Adapted Communities, and Safe, Effective and Efficient Wildfire Response.
The Southeast, Northeast and Western Regional Strategy Committees (RSCs) recognize the completion of the National Strategy and the National Action Plan and the subsequent transition at the national level to implementation across the nation.
The RSCs are committed to providing the strategic leadership, the collaborative structure and environment, strategic communications and facilitating the tactical actions necessary to achieve meaningful, on-the-ground results.
