Wildland Fire Policy Committee. The Wildland Fire Policy Committee promotes nationwide efforts to reduce wildfire threats through aggressive prevention, public information and education, mitigation, preparation and response efforts. The committee keeps abreast of all emerging wildland and wildland-urban interface issues facing the fire service and responds accordingly. Committee members serve as representatives on other national fire leadership groups, attending appropriate meetings and serving as subject matter experts.
These committee seats are available now.
