Appalachian RC&D Fire Adapted Communities Coalition

In 2016, a group of RC&D’s aimed to expand the success of the Fire Adapted Communities concept up the Appalachian Mountain Chain from Georgia to Virginia to help reduce the risk of wildfire in communities in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) most of which border National forests. 

The Appalachian RC&D FAC Coalition is made up of 6 RC&D Councils in Georgia (1), North Carolina (4), and Virginia (1) along the Appalachian Chain. Their goal is to transform Appalachan mountain counties into fire-adapted communities by using the FAC Fire Learning Network methods where people educate their neighbors, family, and friends as to Fire Adapted principles and practices. The newly created Appalachian RC&D Coalition will serve as the mechanism to spread the FAC concept to communities at risk from wildfires in this area.
