We offer scholarships for safety investigation programs and courses, through donations to related wildland fire programs. We are an advocate for an accredited School of Wildland Fire at community colleges and universities to teach fire courses, and assist the future firefighters who seek to major in Wildland Fire Science. We reach out to local communities to teach how wildland fire affects them, and the importance of defensible space. The WFGI includes educating city leaders on the importance of wildland crews, defensible space, and their civil responsibilities to their citizens.
