Wildland Fire Management is a complex problem that needs to be addressed using a holistic, multi-faceted approach. This year's workshop will discuss solutions, science, and stories of successful strategies to address wildland fire under the framework of the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy. 

The National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy is a strategic push to work collaboratively among all stakeholders and across all landscapes, using best science, to make meaningful progress towards the three goals:
1. Resilient Landscapes
2. Fire Adapted Communities
3. Safe and Effective Wildfire Response

Vision: To safely and effectively extinguish fire when needed; use fire where allowable; manage our natural resources; and as a nation, to live with wildland fire.

General Information:

The California – Nevada – Hawaii Forest Fire Council (CNH) was born from the foresight of a few dedicated wildland fire protection managers in 1955. These pioneers saw the need for close cooperation and coordination among people and agencies engaged in research to solve the wildland fire problems of California and Nevada (and, later, Hawaii). They observed that these fire problems were increasing in complexity and posed an immediate and growing threat to the states’ wildland resources and to the increasing population that depended on the wildlands as a source of many useful products, their home sites, their livelihoods, and recreation.

The history of CNH continues today with people who still share the same vision of the organization’s founders. Although many fire problems have been solved or mitigated over the years, many challenges remain. The burgeoning population in all three states has placed ever greater pressures on the wildlands, including the increasing incidence of wildfires.


The mission of the council is to promote professional Wildland Fire Management practices, protect lives and property, and enhance natural resource values in California, Nevada, Hawaii, and our Pacific Partners. The mission shall be achieved by: 
Providing an open forum for identification and discussion of issues related to Wildland Fire Management.

Encouraging and promoting wildland fire management research and development. Serving as a forum for technology transfer relating to Wildland Fire Management.
Promoting public awareness of wildland fire issues and concerns with emphasis on supporting and implementing "fire safe" activities
