Sharing fire knowledge from
mesas to mountains
The Southern Rockies Fire Science Network connects people with credible fire science for sound decisions in land management and planning.
We are one of 15 regional fire science exchanges sponsored by the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP).

What is Fire Science?
Fire science is the study of all aspects of fire, from fire behavior and ecology, to economics and social sciences.
The term ”fire science” can refer to the science of fire in general, or it can apply to a specialized area such as fire prevention, management, ecology, or effects.
The Southern Rockies Fire Science Network supports the exchange of wildland fire science and knowledge about fires on public and private lands, rangelands, and impacts on our region’s populated areas.
Why SoRock Exists
Our passion is to provide a support system and be a catalyst for the wildfire community, helping you to interact and share credible fire science to make sound fire management decisions.
We also provide support or mini-grants for regional projects, events, training, and travel for anyone interested in or affected by wildfire.

The SoRock Region
Our fire science region is divided up into six subregions (or ecotypes) across seven states. Learn more about why subregions are vital to our mission.
