September 28: Wildfire Risk to Communities: New Features and Data | Greg Dillon, Director USFS, Fire Modeling Institute, Rocky Mountain Research Station
Wildfire Risk to Communities is a free, easy-to-use website with interactive maps, charts, and resources to help communities understand, explore, and reduce wildfire risk. It was created by the USDA Forest Service under the direction of Congress and is designed to help community leaders, such as elected officials, community planners, and fire managers. This is the first time wildfire risk to communities has been mapped nationwide.
October 26: Snag Hazard Mapping to Reduce Risk to Wildland Fire Responders | Karin Riley, Kit O'Connor
December 7: How are LANDFIRE's Vegetation & Cover Products Mapped? | Daryn Dockter
What is staying the same?
- Open format, you bring your questions and we bring the experts. Our Team will be on hand to provide context and clarity around LANDFIRE questions. If we can't answer your question on the call, we will connect you with the right person after the meeting.
What is changing?
- Office hours will change from a 1-hr format to a 45-minute meeting (with the option to extend if needed)
- We will focus on application-based, user driven topics this year. Would you like to be featured on an Open Office Hour? Let me know below.
