AUSTRALIA:
NATIONAL FUELS SCIENCE WEBINAR SERIES

Three webinars on three Wednesdays discussed the issues, science, constraints, beliefs, culture, truths and myths around hazard reduction burning in Australia.

  • The thing about hazard reduction: why is it so difficult and divisive

  • The science of hazard reduction: what do we know, what are the knowledge gaps?
  • The practice of hazard reduction: what are the potentials and limitations?

FROM WILDFIRE MAGAZINE
UK Firewise Recognized for Building a Sustainable and Empowered Community

"Historic wildfires can be a strong community motivator. The sparks for this group were laid 8 years previously, directly after an extensive fire when neighbors got together and realized that better planning was needed to ensure everyone knew about heathfires and how to act sensibly and safely.”

COHESIVE STRATEGY WORKSHOP MOVES TO 2021
After careful consideration we've made the decision to postpone the 4th National Cohesive Wildland Fire Strategy Workshop to 2021.
It will be held in Asheville, North Carolina on October 4-8, 2021.
This doesn't mean you won't be hearing from us! We'll have some great opportunities to stay in touch until we meet again in person.
Stay tuned and we hope to see you in Asheville in 2021.
