Subject: The long awaited Cohesive Fire Strategy website has gone live!

Hello All,

I am pleased to announce that the Wildland Fire in the South ( website has gone live.  We welcome you to explore the site and provide feedback.

Mike Zupko, formerly the Southeastern Regional Chair of the Cohesive Strategyand who guided this project, wanted all the southern success stories (Models for Action-MFA) to be tagged to “actions in the southeast”…hence the name, Models for Action.  To locate these from the main page, click on one of the 5 southern values (Firefighter & Public Safety, Property Protection, Marketable Products, etc.). At the bottom half of this next Value page there will be a list of “actions”.  Click on one of the actions and success stories related to that action will be listed on the right side of the screen.

Thank you for all your contributions!
