Yeah, that's right, FEMA has a podcast. And it's pretty good. The recent edition focuses on building fire-adapted communities. Worth checking out...
From the FEMA press release:
Today, FEMA released the podcast “Advancing Wildfire Resilience through the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network.” Since 2013, the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network (FAC Net) has connected and supported people and communities who are striving to live more safely with wildfire. FAC Net serves as a catalyst for spreading best practices and innovations in fire adaptation concepts nationwide.
FEMA Region 10 visited Ashland, Oregon, in April, interviewing members of FAC Net during its annual workshop. Michelle Medley-Daniel with the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network, Allie Lerch and Chris Chambers with Ashland Fire & Rescue, and Hilary Lundgren with the Washington Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network shared perspectives and experiences on successes, tools and growth of the network from eight to 24 communities.
