Collective Strategies & Communications is a Washington, DC based government relations, communications and public policy firm dedicated to serving the interests of Western entities, communities and states at risk from or fighting wildfire.

Wildfire is endemic around the world today, perhaps more than ever in recorded history; causing immense destruction every year to critical infrastructure, property and lives.

Drought, high heat, climate change, well-intentioned but poorly conceived forest management practices, and ill-considered development within the wildland urban interface all contribute to the fires we see around us.

Collective represents the interests of companies directly and indirectly involved with and dedicated to fighting wildfire.
