Nomination period for 2019 Wildfire Mitigation Awards opens

Monday, September 24, 2018
The Wildfire Mitigation Awards Committee is pleased to invite nominations for the 2019 Wildfire Mitigation Awards.
 
Established in 2014, in response to an overwhelming number of great wildfire mitigation program efforts across the nation, the national Wildfire Mitigation Awards program recognizes outstanding work and significant program impact in wildfire preparedness and mitigation.
 
The Wildfire Mitigation Awards are jointly sponsored by NASF, the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the USDA Forest Service. 
 
These awards are designed to recognize effective community fire adaptation efforts such as creation of local mitigation coalitions, community wildfire protection plans, community-wide assessments with the FAC-Sat tool, defensible space, home hardening, hazardous fuels treatments, fire department engagement in wildfire risk reduction, and use of codes and ordinances by individuals and organizations. By honoring their achievements, the award sponsors seek to increase public recognition and awareness of the value of wildfire mitigation efforts.
