AZFAC membership allows active fire adapted communities’ practitioners to:
- Connect with other professionals who are working on wildfire resilience/adaptation issues
- Access FAC-related relevant resources and tools
- Share experiences with other practitioners
- Work with state leaders and decision-makers
- Meet and learn from others through statewide events, conferences and meetings
AZFAC members work to build sustainable wildfire resilience and adaptive capacity in fire-prone communities across the state of Arizona. According to the national FAC Net, “A fire adapted community consists of informed and prepared citizens collaboratively planning and taking action to safely co-exist with wildland fire.”
AZFAC members are dedicated to sharing inspirations, innovative ideas, lessons learned and best practices to advance and promote the practice of community wildfire adaptation. Members also work together to build capacity to better fulfill sustainable wildfire resilience in Arizona’s fire-prone communities.
AZFAC works with organizations like fire departments, conservation districts, non-profits, and Firewise/FAC councils and coordinating groups to advance and promote the practice of community wildfire resilience and adaptation.
Please Note: AZFAC membership is open to both active community wildfire resilience practitioners and wildfire resilience community leaders and community members. We will accept individual or organizational profiles. Potential members are required to complete a brief profile and description of their work that highlights activities and/or products that contribute to their community’s fire adaptation.
