We have a massive wildfire problem. Wildfires now cost billions of dollars to suppress annually, yet still devastate lives, communities, and ecosystems. While wildfire is a natural phenomenon, learning to live with wildfire is a social issue – so we need a social solution. Our unique approach unites research and practice, collecting and using community-specific data to tailor programs that support local solutions, allowing communities to get in front of the problem.
The WiRē Center provides training and support to communities and practitioners to implement the WiRē Team’s systematic data collection and integration approach.
