This Wildland Fire Safety Summit will attract everyone involved in decision making – from front line firefighters to incident managers and fire executives. Questions we hope will be addressed at the Summit through the many presentations and networking opportunities:

  • Do we teach decision-making to fire leaders well?
  • Can we use technology to improve situational awareness?
  • How do we allow for human factors in decision making?
  • Are we equipping incident management teams to make wise decisions?
  • Are the accepted wildland fire safety doctrines of the “10 Standard Fire Orders» and «18 Watchout Situations” still relevant in today’s technical world?
  • What are the consequences when things go wrong?
  • Are there things we can learn from other (non-fire) disciplines where high consequence decisions are made?
