Neighborhood Leader Library
We rely on volunteer neighborhood leaders supported by Fire Adapted Communities program staff and fire district personnel to help communities prepare for wildfire. Neighborhood leaders provide a conduit for information and educational materials to their neighbors. Beyond that, leader commitment and involvement is customizable, and FAC program staff can help leaders organize wildfire preparation activities for neighborhoods such as educational workshops, wildfire preparation block parties, and community work days. All levels of involvement are welcome. Learn more about neighborhood leader involvement and resources available to leaders by clicking on the following links and contacting the Fire Adapted Communities Coordinator at [email protected] for more information.
