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
    • Wildfire Decision & Data Mapping - NASA Project
  • Community Solutions Initiative
    • 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.
