Program: Fighting Wildfire with Fire – Rx Fire Toolbox to Combat Identified Social Barriers
Speaker: Dr. Urs P. Kreuter, “Joan Negely Kelleher” Professor, Ecology & Conservation Biology, Texas A&M University
Description: Elevated fuel loads together with projected hotter and drier climatic conditions will likely lead to more frequent erratic wildfires in the western USA. Recognition that changing climate and decades of fuel accumulation are increasing the risks of wildfire has led to calls for fire management reform, including the widespread use of prescribed fire to reduce fuel loads. However, this shift in fire management emphasis is failing to be widely adopted due to social and regulatory barriers to using fire. To ensure fire management reform is broadly adopted on private land in the western states, the attitudes of stakeholders towards the use of prescribed fire as a wildfire reduction tool need to be clearly understood.
