Training Spotlight: Wildland Fire Assessment Program

Wildfires pose a very serious risk to many communities across the country. For a limited time the NVFC is offering its online Wildland Fire Assessment Program (WFAP) training for free. WFAP is a joint effort by the U.S. Forest Service and the NVFC to provide volunteer firefighters and Fire Corps members with training on how to properly conduct assessments for homes located in the wildland-urban interface. This four-part train-the-trainer online course includes the following modules: understanding the WUI problem; identifying the zones; evaluating the home; and available resources.
