To better serve our community, state, region and beyond, we integrate strong
science, excellent teaching and
effective outreach. Through our research, we provide science and technology
for the wildland fire management community. We teach the leading
professionals of the future by listening and working with students and
managers to effectively apply science to solve real-world problems. Our
outreach connects us to people interested in, involved with or affected by wildland fire in forests and rangelands. We deliver science and transfer
Three outreach efforts are highlighted here.
The first is
Smoke Management training developed in collaboration and with funding
from the NWCG Smoke Committee.
The Fire Research And Management Exchange System
is a national effort led by University of Idaho staff to develop a
one-stop web resource for fire information.
Through our certificate and
401 Series programs, we get science into
the hands of users through online courses that also help fire professionals
gain the education they need.
Most of our research projects have active outreach
University of Idaho Extension Forestry Program offers many programs on
fire ecology, wildland-urban interface and many related topics.
