Good afternoon –

We’re excited about today’s podcast highlighting the work of the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network. This is an engaging, inclusive network making advances in peer-to-peer learning that support the private sector, local government, tribes, states, schools, and the general public. We know that we can’t do this alone so let’s reach out to a friend or an acquaintance to find support and share lessons. Take a listen and share with all who would be interested!

FEMA releases Podcast #38:
“Advancing Wildfire Resilience through the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network”
May 22, 2019

BOTHELL, Wash. – Today, FEMA released the podcast “Advancing Wildfire Resilience through the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network.” Since 2013, the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network (FAC Net) has connected and supported people and communities who are striving to live more safely with wildfire. FAC Net serves as a catalyst for spreading best practices and innovations in fire adaptation concepts nationwide.

FEMA Region 10 visited Ashland, Oregon, in April, interviewing members of FAC Net during its annual workshop. Michelle Medley-Daniel with the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network, Allie Lerch and Chris Chambers with Ashland Fire & Rescue, and Hilary Lundgren with the Washington Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network shared perspectives and experiences on successes, tools and growth of the network from eight to 24 communities.
