This webinar is part of NAFSE's Prescribed Fire Science Workshop Webinar Series and provides a broad overview of the process of writing a burn plan before implementing a prescribed fire (or prescribed burn; RxB). It was broadcast on August 13, 2020....
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.

This webinar is part of NAFSE's Prescribed Fire Science Workshop Webinar Series. It was broadcast on July 16, 2020 to kick off the series.
This webinar has 2 parts:
1. Prescribed Fire Science and Co-production: by Dr. Nick Skowronski,...
We tested whether post-fire seedling establishment of common boreal tree and expanding shrub species at treeline and in Arctic tundra is facilitated by co-migration of boreal forest mycorrhizal fungi. Wildfires are anticipated to facilitate biome...
The global COVID-19 pandemic will pose unique challenges to the management of wildland fire in 2020. Fire camps may provide an ideal setting for the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. However, intervention strategies can help...
The prediction of wildfire rate of spread and growth under high wind speeds and dry fuel moisture conditions is key to taking proactive actions to warn and in turn protect communities. We used two datasets of wildfires spreading under critical fire...
As COVID-19 cases and wildland fire activity increase across the country, wildland fire personnel are looking for ways to quickly identify cases and prevent the spread of the disease on the fireline. The Southwest Fire Consortium will be hosting a...
The Wildfire SAFE app incorporates real-time data from sources that include the U.S. National Fire Danger Rating System, U.S. Drought Monitor drought conditions, weather data, and vegetation conditions to provide targeted information on any wildfire in...
The International Crown Fire Modelling Experiment (ICFME) was a major project of Canadian Forest Service fire research carried out in collaboration with the Government of the Northwest Territories’ Forest Management Division near the community of Fort...
One of the most ubiquitous cause of worldwide deforestation and devastation of wildlife is fire. To control fire and reach the forest area in time is not always possible. Consequently, the level of destruction is often high. Therefore, predicting fires...
A physics/chemistry-based numerical model for predicting the emission of fine particles from wildfires is proposed. This model implements the fundamental mechanisms of soot formation in a combustion environment: soot nucleation, surface growth,...
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.

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. This forum serves as a platform to ask questions, as well as to share ideas, information, and solutions.
The goal of any fire safety training is to create behavior change in our audience.
How do you know if you fire or burn prevention program is creating behavior change?
This webinar will:
- Explain what is behavioral change and...
