WETC Mission Statement

The mission of the Wildland Fire Education and Training Collaborative (WETC) is to develop multiple sources of media, including but not limited to books, videos and classroom exercises, for the purpose of synthesizing the knowledge in fire science and to build as structure from which to move. This will be a joint effort across academia, government institutions and NGOs. Existing media can and will be used in the larger structure and all materials will be peer-reviewed before being released as part of the framework.
