Beginning in the 1960s the U.S. experienced a revolution in fire policy, science, and practice. The contours of that reformation on a national scale are becoming sharper with time. But America is also a confederation of regions, of which three - Florida, California, and the Northern Rockies - are most relevant. The national narrative is the subject of my recent book, Between Two Fires. The regional reconnaissances are now being published, with California among the first. The webinar will fuse the two projects into two questions: What has been California's role in the fire revolution, and how does it sit today within the national narrative?
