Applied Sciences Center for Resilience Studies
The WFCA’s Applied Sciences Center for Resilience Studies (ASC) is a one-stop shop for communities, entrepreneurs, industry, academics, and non-profits seeking resources and services for technology, innovation, policy development and implementation; as well as new enterprises and programs. We help build lasting relationships between communities, government, industry, and academia to improve society and build community resiliency.
Current projects include:
- Community Wildfire Resiliency Initiative
- Mitigations that Matter Strategic Alignment Project
- Wildfire Risk and Self-Protective Investments Project

- The Vulnerably Housed & Unsheltered Fire Problems: Fire Service Perspectives and Needs for Policy Response
Affiliated centers are funded through a mix of grant programs, below-market-rate fees, and private philanthropy, and community donations.
ASC serves as the knowledge broker between industry, businesses, non-profits, communities, and academia, to advance mutually beneficial endeavors, and assist in strengthening the innovation ecosystem in public service.
We are your connection to the fire service.
