The consortium is a way for managers, scientists, and policy makers to interact and share science. Our goal is to see the best science used to make management decisions and scientists working on the questions managers need answered. The Southwest is one of the most fire-dominated regions of the US, and the Consortium is the only regional organization focused on fire research and information dissemination across agency, administrative, and state boundaries. We try to bring together localized efforts to develop scientific information and to disseminate that to practitioners on the ground through an inclusive and open process. Please join us by attending a field trip or workshop, reading and sharing the materials on this website, and/or contributing to the fire conversation by submitting a proposal for an event or product.
The Southwest Fire Science Consortium is funded by the Joint Fire Science Program.
