Welcome to the California Fire Science Consortium website! The CFSC is a network of fire science researchers, managers, and outreach specialists tasked with improving science outreach and knowledge exchange between fire researchers, managers, policymakers, and private landowners.
Below you'll find new CFSC resources and upcoming events.On the left are some great ways to stay connected and updated from emailed newsletters to twitter. In addition to organizing our resources by region, below and in the left menu you'll find links to topic-based resource libraries.
