Preparing for wildfires and knowing how to prevent them will help keep you and your family safe. Improving wildfire prevention and helping communities recover from wildfires is a major priority for Senator Kelly.
Senator Kelly secured $8.25 billion in the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to protect communities against wildfires, support wildfire recovery efforts, increase firefighter pay, and reduce hazardous fuels on federal, state, and tribal lands. Knowing that we can’t keep doing the same things and expect different results, he also introduced a bipartisan bill, which passed as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, to establish a blue ribbon commission to study and recommend wildland fire prevention, suppression, management, and post-fire rehabilitation policies.
