Wildfire Mitigation Academy Training Opportunity

Mitigation Best Practices training concentrates on science, methods and tools to engage communities and residents, eliminate ineffective but common practices and get community fire adaptation actions accomplished on-the-ground. This national level two-day training is for current or future mitigation specialists, wildfire program leads and others working with communities and residents in accomplishing mitigation. Training focuses on federal, state, county, community and non-profit practitioners.

Community Mitigation Assistance Team training focuses on how CMAT works with communities and what skills and experiences are needed to participate on a national CMAT deployment. This training is part of the continuing development and implementation of the CMAT concept and focuses on potential CMAT trainees and team members from federal, state, county, community and non-profit jurisdictions. All CMAT participants must take Mitigation Best Practices Training.
