The Joint Fire Science Program’s Knowledge Exchange Consortia Network is actively working to accelerate the awareness, understanding, and adoption of wildland fire science information by Federal, tribal, State, local and private stakeholders within ecologically similar regions. Our network of 14 regional consortia provides timely, accurate, and regionally relevant science-based information to assist with fire management challenges. Regional activities, through which we engage fire managers, scientists, and private landowners, include online newsletters and announcements, social media, regionally-focused web-based clearinghouses of relevant science, field trips and demonstration sites, workshops and conferences, webinars and online training, and syntheses and fact sheets.
