Presenter: Frank Lake, US Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station.
Description: This presentation provides background information on existing federal agency fire planning and management activities. Additionally, it discusses opportunities for how tribes and communities can coordinate with fire managers to identify values at risk and recommend mitigation actions or other treatments to reduce non-desired impacts to valued resources. This overview includes information about the Wildland Fire Decision Support System (WFDSS) and how “values at risk” are identified and could be managed. Different case study examples will be used to provide place-based context for different resources valued by tribes and communities.
