Pacific Northwest Fire Adapted Communities Website
The Pacific Northwest Wildfire Coordination Group (PNWCG) supports the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy (NCWFMS) and it's three major goals of resilient landscapes, safe and effective wildfire response, and creating and maintaining fire-adapted communities. The PNWCG Communication, Prevention and Investigation Committee (CPIC) has organized this site to help create and maintain fire-adapted communities in the Pacific Northwest.
