Red Rocks Escaped Prescribed Fire Review

Human Factors & Risk Management staff served as social scientist/human dimensions expert for the Klamath National Forest's review team to analyze the escaped Red Rock prescribe fire (2009) from a holistic perspective of high reliability.

The National Wildlife Coordinating Group later used this as evidence that interagency fire direction on managing long duration/landscape scale could be improved.

Sheep Fire

HFRM staff was requested to conduct a 'Lessons Learned' tour of duty on the Sheep Fire, a locally managed long-duration, multiple-objective fire shared by Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Forest and Giant Sequoia National Monument . The effort and document represent a novel, and successful, effort to manage a complex, long-duration fire locally, to capture 'in-the-moment' insights, best practices and lessons for the local units to use in the future, and a mechanism for transferring the lessons to others.
