Should we invest in more wildfire resilience and prevention​?

Nearly a third of all wildfire damage in the U.S. happens in California, polluting our air and wreaking havoc on our public lands, homes, and communities.

For better wildfire resilience and prevention, we must massively scale up funding to focus on mitigation and prevention alongside ecosystem restoration and maintenance; advance land-use planning that protects existing communities and limits new development in the wildland-urban interface; and ensure firefighting jobs are well-paid, safe, and sustainable for workers.
