Wildfires are becoming bigger and more severe around the world, overwhelming firefighters’ capacity to control them. Prescribed fires can be used to safely introduce fire in the landscape and regulate fire regimes through fuel management and by building landscape resilience. Is this approach working?

This week, four fire experts will discuss how fire and resource managers are using prescribed fire to prevent wildfire spread. They will discuss strategic goals and tactics, tradeoffs between broad landscape resilience and local fuel management, and whether prescribed fire intensities are enough to affect outcomes.
