NFPA’s Wildland Fire Operations Division provides information and resources through the Firewise Communities Program and Fire Adapted Communities initiative (both co-sponsored by the USDA Forest Service), education, training, conferences, workshops and courses to communities in high risk areas to help residents reduce their risk of wildfire damage to homes and property.
The mission of the international nonprofit NFPA, established in 1896, is to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life by providing and advocating consensus codes and standards, research, training, and education.
This amazing video clip from the Today Show is from the Austrailian outback. While it is a few weeks old at this point, we just had to share it. You can see a rare "fire tornado" in the clip, which occurs when a wildfire is going on and columns of super heated air
creates the tornado. The photographer who shot the video, said it sounded like a jet engine going off.
