Actions address resident safety, homes, neighborhoods, businesses and infrastructure, forests, parks, open spaces, and other community assets. The more actions a community takes, the more fire adapted it becomes.
Firewise: Contains educational information for people who live or vacation in fire-prone areas of the United States.
Smokey Bear Website: The Smokey Bear campaign is the longest running public service fire prevention campaign in US History.
The Fire Safe Council: Distributes fire prevention education materials to industry leaders and their constituents, evaluated legislation pertaining to fire safety and empowered grassroots organizations to spearhead fire safety programs.
Fire Learning Network: Furthers the Nature Conservancy's biodiversity conservation goals and the goals of the U.S. National Fire Plan by accelerating ecosystem restoration at landscapes and by fostering innovation and transferring lessons learned via regional learning networks.
National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG):The National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) provides national leadership to develop, maintain, and communicate interagency standards, guidelines, qualifications, training, and other capabilities that enable interoperable operations among federal and non-federal entities.
NIFC Communicator's Guide: Wildland Fire: Addresses the key elements of effective communication: who says what to whom, when, where, and why.
