Do you have ideas about how to make wildland firefighting safer?

If so, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is looking for your input to help guide the development of Everyone Goes Home – Wildfire. This national collaborative effort will be focused on creating a safety culture and increasing understanding of related health and safety practices among all firefighters who respond to wildland fires, including federal, state, county, local, and volunteer personnel.
