The Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse


We are in the process of incorporating FIREHouse records into FRAMES and appreciate your patience during this transition. Thank you.

FIREHouse (the Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse) is a web-based project providing information about fire science and technology relevant to Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Alaska. The goal was 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 public lands in these regions. FIREHouse was a collaboration between the Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team (FERA) of the USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, Pacific Wildland Fire Sciences Laboratory; the University of Washington; the National Park Service; the Bureau of Land Management - Alaska Fire Service; the US Fish and Wildlife Service; and the USGS National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII). Funding for FIREHouse was provided by the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) and NBII.
