Learning, adapting, challenging the status quo, connecting new allies, taking action—it’s all in a day’s work as we embrace fire’s place in our place.

ON A MISSION IN WASHINGTON
WAFAC is a diverse group, and we like it that way. As handy as it might be, there is no road map or checklist for fire adaptation. The scale of our task and the geographically distinct regions of our state demand that smart people with different perspectives come together. Together, we’re making headway living with wildfire in Washington.
Behind every Network is a Network. We wouldn’t be here without the vision, guidance and persistence of our Advisory Committee.
