FACO Creates Workplan and Objectives

At the FACO annual meeting held in October the team worked to create an ambitious work plan. While FACO has been around for a few years the major focus early on has been to build the policies and procedures and grow the leadership team so that FACO has a high chance of success.

FACO’s Overall Objectives are:

  • Function as a representative body in Colorado to provide coordinated opportunities for all stakeholders concerned with reducing the negative impacts of wildfires;
  • Secure funding and provide coordination (via committees) for an annual statewide conference focused on all aspects of reducing the negative impacts of wildfires;
  • Leverage resources and relationships to provide fire adapted messaging, educational tools and outreach mechanisms to interest groups and partners;
  • Assisting new and existing organizations by increasing their ability to obtain funding to promote fire adaptation concepts and activities;
  • Maintain a statewide directory of agencies and entities involved in wildfire related issues.
