THE NFPA PODCAST

The Plan to ‘Outthink Wildfire’
On February 23, NFPA unveiled a new initiative called Outthink Wildfire, a comprehensive strategy that challenges policymakers on all levels to take action to reduce loss from wildfire. Its ambitious goal is the complete elimination of community wildfire loss in the United States by the year 2050. What prompted NFPA to take this big step? How will it go about achieving it? What will it take to make this goal attainable? 
 
NFPA CEO and President Jim Pauley stops by the podcast to answer those pressing questions and many others.
