Title: Developing a Southwest Fire Science Consortium

Project Proposal Abstract: The Southwest is one of the most fire-dominated regions of the US and stands out for ecological and cultural diversity, but it is limited in terms of regional capability to disseminate fire research and information. We propose the creation of the Southwest Fire Science Consortium to promote communication and meet fire knowledge needs of scientists and managers. In addition, some of the themes we focus on, such as developing future fire professionals, could serve as models for future national initiatives. Our proposal is grounded in the information we collected across the Southwest with JFSP support since the fall of 2009, as well as interactions with the designers of other consortia and JFSP national staff. The Consortium worked diligently to solicit input through webinars, workshops, surveys, phone and email contacts, and meetings. Our survey showed that 55% of Consortium participants ranked field meetings as the highest priority. The next three most important elements of technology transfer were a new web portal, developing future fire professionals, and systematic reviews. A regional conference, webinars, and other forms of research synthesis such as a newsletter were also important to Consortium participants. We have taken the input from our consortium members and developed a plan of activities for the next two years.
