Heading to North Central Washington to visit with Annie Schmidt, Director of the Chumstick Coalition about how Fire Adapated Communities concepts and collaborative efforts can assist in the fire response and fire recovery efforts on the major fires in the area.
The Chumstick Coalition area is one of the 18 FAC Learning Network Hubs in the USA. With a rich history of successful collaborative behavior and efforts, the Chumstick is in a unique position to assist the fire-ravaged areas nearby.
They recently released an After the Fire Toolkit which, as you can imagine, is getting some serious air time right now.
Stay tuned. I smell a replicable model in the works...
