Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network

About the Network

This site was created to enhance networking and dialogue, and increase the sharing of learning and innovations related to community wildfire resilience. The blog will foster a community of practice comprised of local leaders, firefighters, land managers, business owners and others who are applying fire adapted community concepts.

The FAC Learning Network encourages the development and sharing of best practices and innovations in order to accelerate the adoption of fire adapted community concepts nationwide. The Network supports hub organizations and pilot communities across the United States that have committed to implementing, assessing and sharing the work that they are doing to increase their communities’ resilience to wildfire. The Network is managed by the Watershed Research and Training Center and The Nature Conservancy.

The FAC Learning Network operates at multiple scales. Pilot communities are the foundation for implementing FAC strategies, and hub organizations organize local coordinating groups that bring together partners in the pilot communities to plan and implement local action. The hub organizations then share lessons from the pilot communities regionally and nationally through the Network. This structure of formal and informal connections among community organizers, regional partners and national-network coordinators allows us to share information at all levels, elevating our collective ability to adapt communities’ relationships to the complex fire issues we face.
