10th Wildland Fire Safety Summit

10th Wildland Fire Safety Summit
“10 Years after the TriData Study: What is different?”

27-30 April 2009, Phoenix, Arizona, USA

The 10th Wildland Fire Safety Summit continues the tradition begun by the IAWF in 1997 to provide a forum for sharing the latest developments in wildland firefighting safety. In the mid-1990s, the interagency wildland fire community commissioned the groundbreaking Wildland Firefighter Safety Awareness Study. The final TriData report, released in 1998, made specific recommendations for implementing cultural changes for safety in the areas of culture, leadership, fire management, training, human factors, and organizational learning, to name a few. To revisit the impact of this landmark initiative, a major emphasis of the 10th Wildland Fire Safety Summit will be: “10 Years after the TriData Study: What is different?”.

  • Aviation safety on wildfire operations
