Fire Adapted Communities Graphic and Facilitator’s Guide

FAC Net Staff

This graphic was designed to help explain the fire adapted communities (FAC) framework. It describes a set of components that make up community wildfire adaptation, and gives examples of specific programs and activities that communities can undertake to reduce their wildfire risk and increase their resilience. Remember, FAC is not a one-size-fits-all approach; every community’s journey to living better with fire is unique. This graphic was created by the FAC Learning Network with input from community-based practitioners from across the United States.

Also available are four other versions of the graphic with different highlighted sections so you can pick and choose the layers that help you convey what FAC means in your community.

Please read the facilitator’s guide (click on the download button below) for tips about how to use the graphics. The guide covers what they depict, when to use them, who they are for and important notes.
