Fire Adapted Methow Valley developed and implemented an equity-based wildfire risk mitigation program (EMP) guides and toolkits to help those who are working with historically marginalized, underserved, and overburdened communities to reduce their wildfire risk. The toolkit includes a report of their findings and lessons learned, a guide for program implementation, and an anticipated timeline for program development and implementation.
