FPA releases 2015 local fire department Wildfire Preparedness and Readiness Capabilities Study

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has released Phase One of its first Local Fire Department Wildfire Preparedness and Readiness Capabilities Study. The study takes a look at current preparedness and readiness levels of local wildland/urban interface (WUI) fire departments that have experienced a significant wildfire event in recent years, and identifies the most important elements in a WUI fire protection program, including response and community risk reduction efforts. The study also highlights how fire departments have overcome barriers and have adapted to risk given their available resources.
