To maintain and strengthen meaningful progress towards this vision, the 3rd Annual National Cohesive Strategy Workshop will provide a forum unlike others for collaborative interaction. It will provide an innovative, shared-learning environment for exploration, discussion, understanding, brainstorming, connection and collaboration around the issues we must face to improve outcomes related to wildland fire. It will allow stakeholders to understand their roles and the opportunities for outcome-based approaches through continued and active implementation of the National Cohesive Strategy and how this will allow us to define a future with wildland fire as a key component of healthy ecosystems that meet social and management requirements.

Wildland Urban Interface Conference

With more fire in the wildland-urban interface, greater all-hazard challenges taxing our resources and no expectation of change soon, it’s critical to come together to discuss the issues impacting our industry.

The WUI Conference brings together firefighters, researchers and leadership at the local, state, federal and tribal levels to collaborate on emerging issues and educate wildland-fire management. https://www.iafc.org/events/wui

Lunch and Learn: Prescribed Fire Policy Barriers: Research findings on challenges and strategies on federal lands across the West

Utah State Forestry Extension presents this research update:

Past surveys have identified policies and regulations that managers say limit their ability to conduct prescribed fire.

Researchers are investigating barriers to prescribed fire across the West for the BLM and the US Forest Service. The goals are to identify the origin and range of policy barriers and identify opportunities to overcome them. Learn about what they’ve discovered and contribute your input.

The Science of Budgeting Fire Programs: Integrating Fuels and Preparedness at National and Landscape Levels

Co-sponsored by Colorado State University WESTFIRE Research Center

Fuels treatments and preparedness programs can interact in complementary ways to add value to both programs, increasing budget effectiveness and efficiency, but science is seldom applied to budget and appropriation at the federal level. This research shows how to distribute our budgets in both fuels and preparedness treatments to get the best value from both!
