On April 6, 2020, the Fire Management Board (FMB) established the Wildland Fire Medical and Public Health Advisory Team (MPHAT) to address medical and health-related issues specific to the interagency administration of mission critical wildland fire management functions under a COVID-19 modified operating posture. The COVID-19 MPHAT is tasked with providing medical and public health expertise, advice, coordination, and collaboration with external subject matter experts and developing protocols and practices for all aspects of COVID-19 planning, prevention, and mitigation for wildland fire operations. Guidance found on this page has been issued via FMB Memorandum. They may be updated as appropriate and necessary to respond to the evolving situations and work conditions surrounding COVID-19.
Alaska Fire Portal
The Alaska Fire Portal provides information about fire science and technology relevant to Alaska. Our goal is to provide "one-stop shopping" for resource managers, decision makers, scientists, students, and communities who want access to the results of efforts to understand and manage fire and fuels on lands in Alaska. Content may also be relevant to boreal forests of western Canada.
A substantial amount of the Alaska-related content was originally compiled through the FIREHouse project (the Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse), funded by the Joint Fire Science Program, and its two related projects: the Alaska Reference Database, (which was merged the FRAMES Resource Catalog, accessible through the "Catalog Records" tab below) and the Alaska Fire and Fuels Research Map, hosted through the AICC ArcIMS mapping website.

The Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) is composed of professionals from around the world, who together play a key role in wildland fire and fire ecology research, education, management, and policy. AFE values the diversity of perspectives and range of experiences held by its members. AFE aims to actively cultivate the future of fire and resource conservation by investing in future leaders through the AFE Mentoring Futures Program.
The committee will meet in November to match participants. All are welcome to participate.
This study is collecting feedback from female firefighters regarding the design, fit, and mobility of their personal protective clothing. Females firefighters in the US are invited to participate.
With multiple agencies/entities, groups and task forces all working to find solutions for operational concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, the need for a space to share information is apparent.
