Montana has joined others states in creating a sub-network to develop new ideas, connect people, and share strategies to help Montanans become more resilient to wildfire. Fire Adapted Montana will work collaboratively to amplify existing and new efforts across Montana to support fire adapted communities.
Members will share knowledge about community and homeowner preparedness, lessons learned, education/outreach material, and financial opportunities to spark interest and build support for local efforts across Montana. Working collaboratively Fire Adapted Montana members succeed through their active participation; connecting with other members across the state to collectively improve their local programs. Some examples of how members can contribute to the learning network are: sharing a success story about a community chipping day, organizing a learning exchange on prescribed fire, and contributing materials to the networks resource library.
Advisory Board Members promote the successes of members and the Fire Adapted Montana Learning Network. They share their knowledge as subject matter experts, communicate network functions to their partners, and provide strategic guidance to members.
Currently we are informing and sharing information about Fire Adapted Montana with Montana organizations, agencies, and cooperators to receive input and support.
Fire Adapted Montana is committed to providing digital and in-person opportunities for members to connect, align, and promote fire adapted communities in their areas. In addition Fire Adapted Montana will grow partnerships, engage with new members and advisors.
