Building wildfire resiliency in the communities throughout Minnesota's Arrowhead region.

A Fire Adapted Community

Our partners strongly believe in empowering communities with the resources and knowledge necessary to be resilient in the face of wildfire threats. Fire has, and will continue to play, a critical role throughout the forested region. This page serves as a resource for the Fire Adapted Communities work in the Upper Midwest and our partners are involved in assisting with community-driven wildfire risk reduction efforts in the region. This work has supported landowner outreach and education, trainings for local fire departments on wildfire preparation and protection, and facilitating the development of Community Wildfire Protection Plans.

Through additional funding support, we have led fuels reduction efforts in communities prone to wildfire threats and has empowered rural communities to develop infrastructure to improve their resilience to wildfire impacts.
