About Fire Department Exchange (FDX)

The Fire Department Exchange (FDX) is based on a successful face‐to‐face exchange event and web‐based network stemming from the FAC Learning Network which is cooperatively managed by The Watershed Research and Training Center and The Nature Conservancy. The FDX program will facilitate face‐to‐face and host web‐based exchanges for fire departments facing wildland‐urban interface outreach and mitigation challenges.  

The core focus is to encourage exchanges among departments in order to broaden their knowledge‐base, consider alternative measures, create new solutions and improve overall practices and procedures within their wildland fire educational outreach and operational processes.

A select group of fire department representatives who have shown success with their community preparedness outreach and approach to improving wildland fire operations has been assembled to further develop this new program.
