Fire service and homeland security leaders discussed issues ranging from wildfires in the wildland-urban interface and improving firefighter safety to fostering more diverse and inclusive fire departments at the U.S. Fire Administrator’s Summit on Fire Prevention and Control on Tuesday at the National Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg, Md. “I can’t begin to tell you how very important this summit is,” U.S. Fire Administrator Dr. Lori Moore-Merrell said, calling the event “historic” after a morning roundtable that included Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security John Tien, National Security Council Senior Director for Resilience and Response Caitlin Durkovich, and FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell. “We’ve identified some very real issues and we have a lot of work yet to do.”
