Welcome to the Northwest Fire Science Consortium (NWFSC) website! The NWFSC is a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional network consisting of federal and state agencies, non-governmental organizations, universities, and private landowners within Washington and Oregon. We are part of a national network of Consortia established by the Joint Fire Science Program to accelerate the awareness, understanding and adoption of wildland fire science. The NWFSC can help you get connected with managers, practitioners, scientists, and local communities and collaboratives working on fire issues on forest and range lands in the Northwest.
The goals of the NWFSC are:
- Improve access to wildland fire science for federal, tribal, state, local, and private stakeholders in Oregon and Washington.
- Facilitate communication, knowledge exchange, and learning between fire science searchers and fire science users.
- Promote opportunities for collaboration and participatory research.
Here you will find your one-stop shop for the most current and emerging fire science in the Northwest. Explore the searchable library for topics on a variety of fire-related issues. Check out the on-line calendar for upcoming trainings and workshops.
Have a question or comment about field methods, applications, or treatments? Starting a new research project? Looking for research needs and ideas from the field? Want to connect with others in your field? Post your questions and comments on the discussion forum and get feedback and ideas from your colleagues around the Northwest.
Whether you are a fire manager, a private landowner, a research scientist, a member of a collaborative group or a community, or a fuels specialist, our job is to provide you with the information and opportunities you are looking for.
