The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) in partnership with the Mt. Charleston Fire Protection District is excited to offer the Wildland Fire Assessment Program (WFAP).
About the Class
WFAP is a joint effort by the U.S. Forest Service and the NVFC to provide departments with training on how to properly conduct assessments for homes located in the wildland-urban interface. This is the first program targeted to volunteers that specifically prepares a firefighter or a non-operational department volunteer for how to conduct an assessment, what to look for during an assessment, as well as provides printed materials needed to help their community become more fire adapted. The course is a four-part, train-the-trainer series that covers understa nding the WUI problem, identifying the zones, evaluating the home, and available resources.
