General: Southwest Fire Science Consortium Incident of the Year Nominations (posted May 17, 2019)

Think about fires during which science is effectively used in the decision-making process... and let's recognize them!
Below is the nomination text. We are early in the season, so please consider this while you work fire this season!

There is a great deal of decision space when managing wildland fires, and once public and firefighter safety is addressed, land managers and fire professionals have latitude when applying wildfire management strategies and tactics. The way those strategies and tactics are employed can have lasting impacts on the landscape both beneficial (e.g., reduced fire severity) as well as detrimental (e.g., increased erosion). With continued use and emphasis on managing wildfires for multiple objectives, there is an opportunity to learn and educate ourselves and others on effective ways to enhance the resource benefits of wildfires. Fire science continues to provide us with an understanding of the role fire plays on our landscapes. Every year research studies provide the fire community with new knowledge that managers and practitioners can use when making management decisions (e.g., see van Mantgem et al. 2016). The Southwest Fire Science Consortium is looking for examples of wildfire management that attempted to enhance resource benefits and that were guided by fire science knowledge. For example, given safety and suppression objectives, do you know of a 2019 incident where specific actions were taken to identify and achieve resource benefits? Examples can come from full suppression fires or those managed to meet multiple objectives. Please nominate the incident so we can learn more about these actions and decisions and recognize these efforts. Too often, the wildland fire community talks only about lessons learned from mistakes rather than those learned from successes ‐ so let’s talk success, fire use, and fire science. Nominations will be evaluated on fire outcomes and how the following factors were considered by fire managers, crews, and land managers during the wildland fire incident. We trust that safety was the overriding objective.

General: Survey of Wildfire Risk Assessment and Planning in the Northeast-Midwest U.S. (posted Apr 12, 2019)

You are invited to participate in an important regional survey to improve the understanding of wildfire risk assessment and planning in the 20 Northeast-Midwest states. The goal for this work is to improve the quality of the data that is available to calculate wildfire risk and to better support community and landscape planning work. Whether you are a land manager, local or regional planner, wildfire response or outreach professional, or an emergency manager, your experience with wildfire risk or fire needs is valuable.

Training: National Interagency Prescribed Fire Training Center FY2019 Sessions (posted Jul 19, 2018)

The Prescribed Fire Training Center (PFTC) is a unique program blending maximum field prescribed burning experience with a flexible curriculum of classroom instruction on foundational topics for prescribed fire practitioners.

The PFTC is headquartered in Tallahassee, Florida. Training locations are dispersed throughout Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, North Carolina, and South Carolina. Attendees will travel to several remote sites during their stay to take advantage of prescribed burning and learning opportunities with a variety of agencies, fuel types, and challenges such as urban interface.
The Southeast is an ideal site for the PFTC due to the year round burning programs of several agencies, broad prescription windows, and the high level of interagency cooperation. During their 20 day tour, individuals should expect to participate in prescribed burns conducted for a variety of objectives. The wildland urban interface is a focus of PFTC, and most participants will have opportunities to conduct burns in interface situations. This variety of field experience with the different prescriptions, planning procedures, and techniques of the various agencies offers an accelerated learning opportunity for the participants.
