FEMA Accepting Applicants for Wildfire Commission

New group will recommend strategies for wildfire federal policy.

The Interior, Agriculture, and Homeland Security Departments announced that the new Wildland Fire Mitigation and Management Commission is now accepting applications for membership through March 25. People with experience in wildfire management are encouraged to apply through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and will participate on a monthly basis to advise on policies that will help to more effectively address wildfires in the United States. 

“The commission is seeking volunteer members from diverse backgrounds, with a specific focus on members who represent non-federal interests as required by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,” the Interior Department stated. “Members will commit to serve for the life of the commission, which is estimated to be a year and a half with the first meeting targeted for late spring 2022.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For FEMA officials as they review and choose applicants to serve on the wildfire commission.
  • For the secretaries of the Interior, Agriculture, and Homeland Security Departments as they support efforts to mitigate wildfires.
  • For U.S. agency heads as they oversee the use of federal infrastructure funding.
