The Alaska Fire Science Consortium provides products and services including: seasonal workshops and trainings, webinars and videos, fire science highlights, proposal support and collaboration, help desk service, consultation by subject matter experts, and agency/leadership briefings.
The AFSC is one of fifteen regional consortia supported by the Joint Fire Science Program and is part of a national fire science knowledge exchange network.
The AFSC is guided by an interagency Advisory Board consisting of volunteers from a variety of different professional backgrounds. The Advisory Board meets periodically to help guide and evaluate the direction of Consortium activities, communicate and prioritize the needs of the research and management communities, and assist in organizing and implementing Consortium events.
