4th Annual National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy Workshop

October 4, 2021 (All day) to October 8, 2021 (All day)
Asheville, NC
International Association of Wildland Fire

Hard Truths, Fantastic Failures and Magnificent Successes of Cross-Boundary, Landscape Level and Community-Wide Implementation

Since the inception of The National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy, we have learned that there are multiple “hard truths” of living with fire that must be accepted in order to make meaningful progress towards the three national goals of Resilient Landscapes, Fire Adapted Communities and a Safe, Effective, Risk-Based Wildfire Response. We have also experienced multiple opportunities where learning continues around:

  • Significant wildland fire events that are changing the way future fires are addressed,
  • “Fantastic Failures” where alignment of ideas and resources did not produce the desired outcomes,
  • “Magnificent Successes” where collaborative, cross-boundary collaboration, prioritization and investments have led to better wildland fire and landscape scale outcomes,

The 4th National Cohesive Strategy Workshop will center on these themes, and focus sharply on understanding how the guiding principles and management options are making meaningful progress towards the three goals, to create a learning environment for attendees.
