New fire management paradigms are emerging that recognize fire is inevitable, and in many cases desirable. During this webinar you will be introduced to a new process for spatial fire planning using tools such as Potential Control Line atlases (PCLs), Quantitative wildfire Risk Assessments (QRAs), and Suppression Difficulty Index (SDI). Chris will demonstrate how these tools can align wildfire management decisions and actions, from the development of strategic wildfire response zones to in situ wildfire response decisions that balance operational success, firefighter safety and values at risk. He will also highlight opportunities to use these tools for allocating limited restoration resources to support wildfire response, including areas where cross-boundary management would be beneficial. By the end of this webinar Chris hopes you will have a better understanding of ongoing efforts to engage wildfires before they start, as a means to help society learn to live with wildfire during this period of rapid environmental change.
