Summit Website

Details: Since 1997, the International Wildland Fire Safety Summit has been the gathering place for members of the global wildland fire community to focus on safety: to discuss significant events and trends in safety, to promote best practices in safety training and operations, to reveal safety related research findings, and to explore new approaches to safety.

This 14th International Wildland Fire Safety Summit is themed on Decision Making in High Risk and High Consequence Environments.  In a world that is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous, key decisions, made in time pressured environments, often have far reaching consequences on our people and on the community.
