The National Firefighter Registry (NFR) is the largest effort ever undertaken to understand and reduce risk of cancer among U.S. firefighters. NIOSH is recruiting firefighters to join the NFR in order to better understand the link between firefighting and cancer. Firefighters are exposed to chemicals on the fireground that could increase their risk of developing cancer. There are many unanswered...
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.

Alaska Fire and Fuels Research Map
The Alaska Fire and Fuels Research Map provides online site-level information and locations for fire and fuels-related studies through a map interface. Funding was provided by the Joint Fire Science Program and it is hosted through the Alaska Interagency Coordination Center.
Alaska Reference Database
The Alaska Reference Database provides a listing of fire research publications relevant to Alaska and a venue for sharing unpublished agency reports and works in progress. The Joint Fire Science Program provided initial funding.
