Fire-Adapted Communities (FAC)

The IAFC is an active partner in the National Wildland Fire Cohesive Strategy. As part of the IAFC's commitment to the development and implementation of the Cohesive Strategy we provide information and resources to the fire service, including a focus on Fire-Adapted Communities (FAC), a strategy toward the safe co-existence of human populations, infrastructure and wildland fire.

The IAFC's focus on FAC has taken shape in the work of the IAFC's Wildland Fire Policy Committee, the Ready, Set, Go! Program and the Wildland-Urban Interface conference, and guidance documents like Your Role in Fire Adapted Communities, a collaborative effort with the U.S. Fire Administration.

Learn more about the IAFC’s efforts toward Fire Adapted Communities by visiting the FAC information page on the RSG! Program website.
