“Promoting the Story of Wildland Fire Safety… From the Local to the Global”
The Safety Summit returns to Missoula in 2011 with a unique theme that celebrates the role of story and narrative in advances in wildland fire safety research and practice. “Promoting the Story of Wildland Fire Safety From the Local to the Global” features keynote speakers who continue to push the boundaries of research and practice in wildland fire safety by incorporating elements of story and narrative in their work.
The program will also offer special training opportunities, including special workshops with international safety expert Gordon Graham. In addition to your contributed oral presentations, the conference will feature “electronic” posters for the first time.
The 11th International Wildland Fire Safety Summit will also take full advantage of its location in Missoula by offering indoor and outdoor exhibitor shows, a special screening of Red Skies of Montana, and tours to key wildland fire landmarks in the Missoula area including the Missoula Smokejumper base. We invite you to submit a paper, to attend the conference, and to plan to participate in all the conference has to offer.
