I am the Fire Adapted Communities Program Coordinator at the Austin Fire Department Wildfire Division. Primarily I work with the local neighborhoods to promote the FAC concepts. We have a strong Firewise community in Austin and Travis county that AFD works with and we support the Austin Firewise Alliance. The division has a robust GIS team that defines, educates, maps and documents all the wildfire risk mitigation work being done. The Wildfire division has a fuels mitigation crew working on mechanical reduction as well as full AFD support on prescribed fire operations.
