WTREX is a prescribed fire training exchange that recognizes and reinforces the critical role of women's leadership and perspective in fire management

  • Applications are due July 31, 2016.
  • 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).
  • WTREX is an intensive two-week 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 land.
