USA — Dr. Stephen Pyne from the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, specializes in environmental history and the history of fire. In his presentation at NFPA’s Backyards & Beyond conference, he offered his perspective on what wildland fires over the past 100+ years have taught us, how our national approach has changed, and what lies ahead. Dr. Pyne said three approaches are at play: regressive (a revival of the suppression-centric mindset); proactive (modifying landscapes to create more fire resilient communities); and reactive (the “is what it is” mindset, just dealing with fires as they happen).”
