We are a peer group of people who connect regularly and interact in a learning environment to increase our knowledge of fire adapted communities in Washington.

The network functions to support local action, connect people to resources, and inform and influence on-the-ground projects to help Washington better coexist with wildfire. We bring communities, agencies, and organizations together to develop and act on place-based strategies and priorities.

WAFAC is a partnership among community resiliency and wildfire practitioners, the Washington Resource Conservation and Development Council, US Forest Service, and the US Bureau of Land Management. WAFAC is also supported by, and connected to, the national Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network.

WHO IS IN THE NETWORK?
Our network members are people working on fire adaptation and who want to connect with and learn from others who are doing the same. Membership is not an indicator of a “level” of activity, or conditions in those locations. Anyone, anywhere can take action to become more adapted to wildfire.

Climate Innovation Lab

Our network understands that climate, fire, and communities are interconnected and in order to make change we need to call the whole to action. Our network members have partnered with The Nature Conservancy, Sachamama, Latino Community Fund, and Nuestra Casa (Yakima) and CAFE (Wenatchee) to join Latinx community members in climate and fire adaptation efforts.
