The WiRē (Wildfire Research) Team is a partnership between wildfire practitioners and researchers. The team focuses on innovation and new approaches to integrating local social science into wildfire education and mitigation programs. The Wildfire Research (WiRē) Team brings diverse expertise in economics, sociology, and wildfire risk mitigation to a multiyear research project supported by the U.S. Interagency National Fire Plan, the Joint Fire Science Program, and our individual institutions. Our website provides bios of individual Team members and showcases academic and applied findings.
The WiRē Team produced a series of three illustrated videos to help users understand their work.
