Twenty-twenty was a year of challenge and immense hardship for many people and organizations. It was a year that signaled the need for change and adaptation. In addition to the personal and societal changes people experienced, fire adaptation practitioners had to get creative and resourceful in order to keep their work on track. In response, fire adaptation leaders held virtual workshops, employed digital organizing tools and looked to bring new tools and skills to our work.
FAC Net’s weekly blog hosted posts written by practitioners and researchers covering a range of fire adapted communities practices including:
- Post-fire resources;
- Profiles of FAC practitioners;
- Air purifier programs;
- Indigenous stewardship;
- Wireless emergency alerts and research on panic; and
- Understanding complexity and risk in wildfire
We featured authors from New Jersey, California, Oregon, Colorado, Washington and more, and we look forward to sharing more stories from practitioners and researchers in 2021.
