ambassadors from inside (and especially outside) the agency.

Ambassadors are not formal Greening Fire Team members with deliverables and salary funding to cover part of their time. Rather, ambassadors are individuals with a keen interest in advancing sustainable business operations throughout the fire organization.

They receive periodic emails and are invited to join team update webinars and, when in positions to do so, are asked to apply information or products developed by the team.

If you are interested in being a Greening Fire Team ambassador please contact the Greening Fire Team.
