Getting ahead of the wildfire problem: Linking operational fire response to landscape planning objectives

Date: May 17, 2017 11am AZ/12pm MDT
Presenter: Christopher O'Connor, US Forest Service RMRS

Part of the solution to dealing with the increasing complexity of wildfire management is to reduce uncertainties inherent within active fire management, where time-sensitive decisions often rely upon incomplete information.  Breaking out of the wildfire paradox requires aligning the short-term operational objectives of incident responders with the longer term ecological and management objectives of landscape planning.

This webinar will discuss three important aspects:

  • Using risk-based analysis to quantify the potential hazards and benefits of wildfire to the things we care about
  • Developing a network of potential fire control opportunities from characteristics identified from historical fire perimeters
  • Leveraging these control opportunities and risk assessment outcomes to develop response strategies that align fire operations with landscape planning objectives
