Do you have direct experience working with, and have thoughts and ideas about how to improve Fire Safety Burn Bans? The Forest Stewards Guild in partnership with the Southern Rockies Fire Science Network is pleased to announce the launch of our Burn Ban Effectiveness Assessment.
Target audience includes Fire Managers, Operational Fire Staff, and Emergency Management Staff. Others are welcome to share their opinions as well, provided they have some experience with, work directly with, have their work impacted by, or operationally enact fire safety burn bans as a function of their position.
The primary purpose of this assessment is to fill in current gaps of knowledge related to working with burn bans with hopes to find uncommon solutions to common problems across our geographic reach. Focus areas of this assessment include current challenges, techniques that do or don’t work, changes you as a member of the wildland fire community would like to see, and realistic mechanisms by which these changes might occur. Your anonymous response is greatly appreciated, and will be used in a final report, which is expected to be available Summer 2021.
Please share this assessment far and wide with folks that would be likely to fit the target group.
