Following the initial discussions at the foundation meeting of the Regional South America Wildland Fire Network and the Pan-American Wildland Fire Conference in 2004, a Caribbean Subregional Technical Workshop (Taller Técnico Subregional del Caribe) was held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, 31 May-2 June 2005. Besides a draft proposal for a Fire Management Cooperation Strategy for the Caribbean 2006-2011 (Estrategia de Cooperación del Caribe para el Manejo del Fuego) the national fire focal points agreed to establish the network and request Cuba to take the lead and coordination function.
After the second meeting of the Forest Fires Regional Networks of South America, Mesoamerica and Caribbean held in Brasilia, Brasil in September 2012, Dominican Republic accepted the pro tempore presidency and focal point responsability of the network.
