Hard-working people, focused on fire


Step outside in Washington, and you are likely standing on a landscape shaped by fire.  Topography, vegetation, and weather all shift how fire behaves.

But what doesn’t shift is the attachment – to our place, to each other, and to the gifts, challenges, and responsibilities that wildfire brings to Washington.


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. Collaborate with us.


We are curious and motivated to learn from the exexperiences of of others.  We take time to listen, ecause in our Network, listening leads to action.

This mindset brings energy to the room, emboldens quieter voices, and jump-starts a movement to better live with fire.

We are committed to the process and work to balance immediate needs with long-term objectives for community resilience.


Here is some of what WAFAC has accomplished together.
