National Community Mitigation Assistance Teams (CMAT) are designed to help communities build sustainable local capacity for wildfire mitigation during high risk times before, during, or after a wildfire when awareness of the need for risk reduction and the likelihood of action is highest. The Team integrates community fire adaptation best practices and resilient landscapes concepts outlined in the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy(link is external).

In 2019, CMAT is seeking new members and will be hosting a training at the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise Idaho – March 5 & 6, 2019.
