• In addition to protecting the state and fighting wildfires, many Texas A&M Forest Service programs are aimed at building local capacity and helping Texans prevent wildfires, prepare for and protect from them. 


    We work with local fire departments and communities and provide grants for training and equipment.


    We work with local government officials and fire departments to prepare Community Wildfire Protection Plans and identify high-risk areas where mitigation measures could save lives and property. 


    We inform and educate property owners on ways to improve the survivability of their property in the event of a wildfire. We also provide tools and resources for Texans to learn their risk from wildfire and steps they can take to reduce risk and prepare.
