Community Liaison Program as a Tool to Providing Best Outcomes
Karuna has been instrumental in creating and promoting the Community Wildfire Liaison concept and is currently working on creating a toolkit to assist other communities, Fire Safe Councils, and managing agencies in creating Community Liaison Programs of their own. The purpose the of the Community Liaison Program is to facilitate timely and transparent communication and information exchange between the incoming Incident Management Teams (IMT’s), the land management agencies, and the communities affected by fires and firefighting activities during and after a wildfire event. This project strives to spread the community liaison concept, as a tool for creating best outcomes during wildfire events. If you have input or questions please send them along.
