Forestry & Natural Resources Extension Fire Program

Wildfire in the west has increased in scale, complexity, and duration; and the amount of people building homes in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) is on the rise. Evident from the 2017 fire season, awareness and understanding through education and sound science is critical. General knowledge of fire can help dampen fears and confusion. The Forestry & Natural Resources Extension aims to offers a comprehensive, consistent, and cohesive approach to a Fire Program for all its people.
