Title: Extending the Reach of the Fire Effects Planning Framework by Taking a Critical Approach to Science Delivery and Application

Project Proposal Abstract: The Fire Effects Planning Framework (FEPF), developed under the JFSP project #99-1-3-16, was formally completed in June 2004. Although all proposed technology transfer activities were completed, field managers, national and international fire planning organizations continue to request information and assistance with FEPF. A challenge researchers face when developing first generation technology transfer (TT) materials is that field units often see additional or different utility in tools than that originally envisioned. Only by working in continued partnership with managers, and tracking how they use the tools and information, can researchers develop well targeted and comprehensive TT products. Current TT materials on FEPF would benefit from inclusion of additional descriptions in response to user's requests and use of new, innovative knowledge transfer mechanisms. We propose to improve the use and acceptance of the FEPF by further developing TT materials, to implement these on three different technology transfer/science delivery and application platforms (web, workshop and in-person consultations) and to assess their utility. The principal objectives of this study are to: increase the use of FEPF by expanding the electronic library of descriptive and explanatory materials; increase distribution and awareness by creating a stand-alone, workshop-based training module; and increase the use of FEPF by taking advantage of new, innovative web-based technologies to deliver FEPF training materials and encourage discussion, interaction and improvement of the process. To accomplish this, we will work collaboratively with the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center, USFS Region 1, and the Sierra National Forest. We will track utilization and evaluate effectiveness of the different TT materials developed. Evaluation of project materials and platforms will provide guidance for future science delivery and application/technology transfer activities - applicable to all fire research. Benefits of successful transfer of the FEPF include increased capacity to restore fire to fire-adapted ecosystems while containing costs.
