Wildfire Mitigation Awards

The Wildfire Mitigation Awards are the highest national honor one can receive for outstanding work and significant program impact in wildfire preparedness and mitigation. The program was established in 2014 by the National Association of State Foresters (NASF), the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the USDA Forest Service (USFS) in response to an overwhelming number of great wildfire mitigation program efforts happening across the United States.

All nominations for 2022 Wildfire Mitigation Awards must adhere to this criteria and be submitted to this online form by Friday, November 12, 2021. The 2022 Wildfire Mitigation Awards will be presented at the Wildland Urban-Interface 2022 Conference.
