Key things to know about WTREX:
-This year, WTREX will represent a one-time refocusing of the Nor Cal TREX (working in the same locations with Nor Cal TREX burn hosts); new WTREX locations are anticipated for future years.
-WTREX is an intensive 12-day training exchange that combines practical live-fire training with indoor learning and discussion to advance participants’ qualifications and experience in wildland fire operations.
-WTREX will engage both women and men in building a support network for female fire practitioners working to advance their leadership in wildland fire management.
-WTREX participants will work together to accomplish much-needed prescribed burning in a variety of fire-adapted ecosystems in northwestern California.
-Today’s fire problems are so complex that we need to elevate diversity in intellect, talent, and perspective in order to solve them.
-Managers of federal, tribal, and private lands will serve as hosts, inviting teams of WTREX participants to burn on their lands.
