Network Community Chapters

Community Chapters that have joined The Network, have access to materials to build the capacity for residents to work alongside friends and neighbors to make changes to their homes and landscapes to have a better chance of withstanding a wildfire, even without firefighter assistance. Materials include neighbor invitation letters, press release templates, agendas for community meetings and more. The Network also helps member communities collaborate with local fire services, state and federal agencies and professional services, such as landscapers, contractors and consultants to perform critical fuels reduction work and to alter the built environment of the home to better withstand a wildfire. Member Communities have an updated Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP) and are using it as a guide in their efforts to reduce the wildfire threat to their homes and community.
