Wildfires

The NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP) and its awardees have provided resources and training in support of wildfire response operations in the United States. The following resources are aimed at protecting the health and safety of those responding to wildfires. For a list of resources applicable to a variety of natural and man-made disasters, please visit our All-Hazards Resources page.

Training Resources

The National Clearinghouse creates training tools to aid in the development of awareness-level courses or other awareness-level materials. These tools provide health and safety guidance to those involved in disaster response and cleanup activities. Companion booklets are pocket guides that can be distributed with the training and used as a resource when workers are on a disaster site. To order hard copies of these booklets, please complete the Booklet Order Form.
