Alaska Fire Research Needs
About the Research Task List
A major responsibility of the FRDAC is to solicit the research needs of the AWFCG member agencies and maintain a prioritized list. The list is continually updated as tasks are completed or new research tasks are developed. The FRDAC also cooperates with potential researchers to meet research needs with proposals to funding sources. The committee functions as an interagency coordination point with fire researchers and research organizations to enhance cross-communication of information needs and facilitate partnerships to address questions. The committee makes recommendations to the AWFCG regarding endorsement of research proposals, financial assistance, or in-kind services.
