What is the Northwest Fire Science Consortium?
The Northwest Fire Science Consortium is a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional network consisting of federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations, universities, and private landowners within Washington and Oregon. The Consortium seeks to provide:
- A delivery system for the effective dissemination and adoption of fire science information, knowledge, tools, and expertise.
- A framework within which a variety of existing organizations and outreach programs focused on fire science delivery can coordinate more effectively.
- A venue to increase researcher understanding of the fire science needs of practitioners.
The Management Committee is composed of at least one representative from each lead institution, including the Administrative Director. In total there are ten individuals on the MC: from federal agencies, state universities, extension, and private organizations. The initial MC participants are from the USFS PNW Research Station, the USFS Region 6, Oregon State University, Oregon State University Extension, University of Oregon, Sustainable Northwest, The Nature Conservancy and the Center for Natural Lands Management.
