The target audience is Fire Prevention Specialists, Fire Fighters ( both structural and wildland) and Community Leaders interested in preventing wildfires near homes. The location will be Mystic, Ct, which was chosen because it is located centrally between the two Compacts. Scholarships are available to help with registration and lodging.
