This website features a “I am a…” set of links that contains information on applicable resources, and is organized by whether the user is a member a local community leader, a state or federal partner, a fire department or a homeowner.
Much of the information in the website is contained in the recently published Northeast Wildfire Preparedness Resource Guide.

The latest NE RSC monthly newsletter and past issues are posted on the website as well.
