Northwest Fire Portal

The Northwest Fire Portal provides information about fire science and technology relevant to the northwestern contiguous United States. Our goal is to provide "one-stop shopping" for resource managers, decision makers, scientists, students, and communities who want access to the results of efforts to understand and manage fire and fuels on lands in the Northwest. Content within this portal may also be relevant to the temperate forests of southwestern Canada.


Much of the Northwest-related content was originally compiled through the FIREHouse project (the Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse), funded by the Joint Fire Science Program.
