PRESCOTT-More than 100 people gathered at the Hassayampa Inn in Prescott on Wednesday to take part in a forum presented by the Prescott Area Wildland Urban Interface Commission (PAWUIC).

The theme of this year's 23rd annual forum was "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" which focused on the organization's past accomplishments, PAWUIC chairwoman P.J. Cathey said.

"The forum allowed us to reintroduce PAWUIC to the community and talk about how important the relationship is with the fire departments and National Forest Services," Cathey said.

PAWUIC works closely with the Prescott Fire Department on fuel mitigation, property assessments and red zoning.

Fire departments around the area assist the organization in helping local communities learn to become "Firewise."

Over two hours, six speakers from various fire and forestry services, including Denny Foulk from the Yavapai County Emergency Management, spoke about how the organization came together and how the community can continue to work together with the organization.

"It was an action-packed, whopper of a forum," Cathey said. "All of the speakers were incredible."

In addition to city, county and state officials, representatives from the Prescott Fire Department, PrescottNational Forest and Arizona State Forestry were in attendance as well as members from all 23 Firewise Communities.

The event also paid tribute to the fallen Granite Mountain Hotshots.

"The 19 crew members did a lot of chipping and mitigation work for us," Cathey said. "We don't want to diminish their memory, we want to install a legacy for them."

The organization is funded through a variety of grants and donations.
