Enough uncertainty exists that adaptive management is crucial. Reducing fuel loads is both a science and an art. Fire behavior and forest ecology are both complex, and some effects of restoration treatments will inevitably not be those predicted.
Murray and Marmorek 2003

Wildfire Network works in pursuit of community wildfire resiliency by working with young adults and communities to promote firefighter safety, job development and youth mentorship. Through wildland and prescribed fire training, we employ and mentor at-risk youth in forest health, wildfire mitigation and safe firefighting techniques. We educate K-12 youth about natural fire processes within their environment and provide aid to communities with wildfire risk reduction and property stewardship.

Wildfire Network believes the cornerstone of community wildfire resiliency is education in adaptive management techniques on and around private property.
