You can be a wildfire monitor!

We're excited here at FUSEE about the release of our new Fire Watch: A Citizen's Guide to Wildfire Monitoring. This publication is full of great information to help you learn to become an effective wildfire monitor.

Wildfire management policies are changing dramatically. Appropriate Management Response (AMR), a new federal policy for wildfire management, is being tested this fire season. This policy allows fire managers to manage wildfires for both community protection and ecosystem restoration. Consequently, citizens need to become informed about these changes to assure wildfire will be managed effectively.

The guide is available right on the homepage. We hope you find it useful.
