http://nfpa.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8351b9f3453ef017d41833e89970c-piData_ProjectThis past November, NFPA’s Wildland Fire Operations Division with the help of the National Association of State Foresters (NASF) and the US Fire Administration (USFA) convened a group of 18 wildland fire data reporting experts from local, state and federal organizations  to discuss different wildland fire data collection, reporting and research initiatives that are occurring throughout the United States.

The fundamental purpose of the meeting was to answer this complex question: How can wildland fire organizations consolidate existing wildland fire agency and national fire incident reporting system data sets effectively and efficiently to produce an accurate national cohesive wildland fire risk profile?
