Community Wilfire Protection Plans: Enhancing Collaboration & Building Community Capacity

Printer Friendly View 

Research Advisory Team

The purpose of the JFS Advisory Team is to:

  • Help the JFS research team identify the relevant issues that are of greatest concern to local communities and managers who are developing and implementing Community Wildfire Protection Plans (CWPPs) and monitoring results.
  • Provide input in creating guidance material that will be used within the broader fire management community to address CWPP development and track their accomplishments.
  • Assist in building general awareness for this Joint Fire Science project through the members' organizations and their related networks.
  • Recommend how best to increase the transfer of knowledge about the key results of the project through mechanisms like professional development, education and training workshops, and outreach.

It is envisioned that the Advisory Team will meet two to three times over the 3-year span of the research project 2005-2007.
