NFPA’s Wildland Fire Operations Division provides information and resources through the Firewise Communities Program and Fire Adapted Communities initiative (both co-sponsored by the USDA Forest Service), education, training, conferences, workshops and courses to communities in high risk areas to help residents reduce their risk of wildfire damage to homes and property.
The mission of the international nonprofit NFPA, established in 1896, is to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life by providing and advocating consensus codes and standards, research, training, and education.
