Wildland Fire Assessment Training Coming to an Area Near You

Monday, 26 August 2013

The Wildland Fire Assessment Program (WFAP) is a joint effort by the U.S. Forest Service and the National Volunteer Fire Council to provide departments with training on how to properly conduct assessments for homes located in the wildland-urban interface (WUI). WFAP has several in-person trainings scheduled throughout 2013. Participate in this free training to learn how you can protect your community before a wildfire strikes.
     
WFAP is the first program that specifically prepares volunteer firefighters and non-operational department volunteers for how to conduct a WUI home assessment and what to look for during an assessment, as well as provides supplemental materials needed to determine how close they are to becoming a fire-adapted community. The four-part, train-the-trainer course covers the following topics: understanding the WUI problem, identifying the zones, evaluating the home, and available resources.
 
Check out the locations below to see if the WFAP workshop will be presented in your area. A registration link is provided for each session. Classroom attendance is limited, so sign up today to participate in this free training.
