Now Accepting Nominations for the 2017 Wildfire Mitigation Awards

The Wildfire Mitigation Awards Committee is pleased to begin accepting nominations for the 2017 Wildfire Mitigation Awards.

Established in 2014, in response to an overwhelming number of great wildfire mitigation program efforts across the nation, 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 Wildfire Mitigation Awards are jointly sponsored 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. 

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.
