The IAFC's Community Wildfire Readiness (CWR) program addresses a key component of the National Wildland Fire Cohesive Strategy. We provide the fire service, residents and other community stakeholders with the tools, resources, guidance and support to prepare for the threat of wildfire.
CWR resources help community members create a fire-ready community, including mitigating and working to establish a community coalition. This can take place by promoting wildfire readiness through education and providing the community with proper resources to raise awareness on the steps needed to create a fire-adapted community. Through CWR, we're committed to providing the tools local fire departments, their partners, and residents need to make their communities more fire-adapted.
The RSG Program is one of our fire-adapted the resources that supports developing and improving dialogue between the fire service and the residents they serve. The program helps departments teach individuals who live in high-risk wildland fire areas and the WUI how to best prepare themselves, their families and their properties against outdoor fire threats. Customizable resources allow members to incorporate some familiarity within the program, creating increased buy-in from their local audiences.
