Community Wildfire Mitigation Best Practices Training

This national-level training from Coalitions & Collaboratives, Inc. and the USDA Forest Service is designed for current or future mitigation specialists, wildfire program leads, and others who work with residents and their communities to reduce wildfire risk. The Mitigation Best Practices training concentrates on science, methods, and tools that will help you engage communities/residents while also helping you to eliminate ineffective practices.  

Participants should come with a basic understanding of wildfires, how homes burn, and vegetation management practices. The course assumes you know how to mitigate, but that you could use support to engage your community. In this workshop, you will work through some of the greatest challenges facing our wildland-urban interface communities. The course will help you break down ineffective practices to make space for the more effective ones with a focus on on-the-ground mitigation activities.
