Taking Firewise Communities to the Next Level

Mon. 2:00-3:30 p.m., Centennial F

The Firewise Communities program is ten years old and growing rapidly. Recent additions of the International Association of Fire Chiefs READY! SET! GO! program and Fire Adapted Communities initiative have expanded Firewise tools that take a long-term approach to reducing loss of life, property, and natural resources in the wildland-urban interface. This panel will discuss the ongoing challenges of developing sustainable Firewise communities, changes in insurance practices and their implications, and models for awareness programs and partnerships that effect behavioral changes.
