A free webinar is being offered by the Southwest Fire Science Consortium on Wednesday, December 6, 2017, from 12 - 1 PM Mountain Time. Crystal Stonesifer, from the USDA Rocky Mountain Research Station, will be speaking about; “Federal fire managers’ perceptions of the importance, scarcity, and sustainability of suppression resources.”
The webinar will be sharing the results of a survey that was designed and taken by US Forest Service employees who have direct or indirect responsibility for ordering suppression resources. The survey tried to ask questions that would help identify how fire managers distinguish between suppression resource importance, scarcity and sustainability during times of elevated wildfire risk. They will also discuss topics relating to firefighter risk, exposure, and risk transfer themes. You can register today to participate in this free webinar opportunity.
