Wildland fire management involves specialization and a division of labor. When you order supplies on a wildland fire, you should keep that in mind. In your own specialty area, you need support from others who don’t necessarily have your level of...
Good communications are essential for carrying out fire management activities, whether in conducting fire suppression operations or in establishing two-way dialogues with the public. The Incident Command System (ICS) is similar in style to a paramilitary organization, with a unified command and control structure that requires a good communications infrastructure.

Alaska Fire Science Consortium Workshop | Thursday, October 13, 2016
Presenter: KT Pyne
Alison York summarizes the plans from the NASA Arctic/Boreal Vulnerability Experiment relevant to fire managers.
Wildfires have increased in frequency, duration, and intensity worldwide. Climate change, drought, and other factors have not only increased susceptibility to wildfires, but have also increased the duration of the season. There are a number of factors...
Fire and fuel management has become an increasingly prominent-and often controversial-issue on federal, state, and private lands across the United States. This is especially true at the wildland-urban interface where private property joins public lands...
A diversity of partners and interests, federal to private, came together to identify current challenges and research in the wildland fire and air quality impacts realm. Meeting management needs and the opportunity to learn from one another’s expert...
Seminar presented by Sara Brown, Acting Director of the Human Performance and Innovation & Organizational Learning RD&A Program, to the Missoula Fire Lab on December 13, 2018.
Protected areas are necessary for the conservation and enhancement of biodiversity. Wildfires are major threats to forests and other natural areas, because they may cause irreversible damages. The aim of this study was to analyze the perspective of...
Mega-fires are expected to increase in the Western United States. The state of the science suggests that the best mitigation to prevent destructive forest fires is to reintroduce ecologically beneficial fire, but this can only be accomplished with...
The design, development and initial testing of a prototype probabilistic warning system for Chile, including communication of the warnings at different information levels. The 2016/17 wildfire season in Chile was the worst on record, burning more than...
