Effective Prescribed Fire Communications Workshop

May 10, 2017 10:00 am - 2:30 pm
Larkspur Fire Station 161 - 9414 South Spruce Mountain Road Larkspur, Colorado 80118

Presented by Pikes Peak Fire Learning Network.

The benefits associated with prescribed fire are well known among natural resource professionals. However, studies show that the public at large is less informed. Lack of public understanding affects our ability to implement and advance the use of beneficial prescribed fires along the Front Range. By using effective communication strategies and compelling messaging, we can increase public understanding and appreciation for the use of prescribed fire.

The goals of this workshop are to:

  1. Learn about prescribed fire communication strategies that Front Range fire practitioners use
  2. Review research findings and best practices for effective prescribed fire messaging
  3. Develop compelling prescribed fire messages and stories for public and media
  4. Share our messages with media representatives and receive feedback
