The International Association of Fire Chiefs, National Association of State Foresters, National Fire Protection Association, and the USDA Forest Service are now accepting nominations for the 2017 Wildfire Mitigation Awards.
The Wildfire Mitigation Awards are the highest national honor one can receive for outstanding work and significant program impact in wildfire preparedness and mitigation.
The three award categories include:

These awards are designed to recognize outstanding service in wildfire preparedness and safety across a broad spectrum of activities and among a variety of individuals and organizations.
