Project Proposals
Project proposals can be submitted at anytime throughout the year from anyone involved in wildfire operations or wildfire management. Proposals are presented and discussed at our two advisory meetings where funding members vote on each proposal as either high, medium or low priority. Proposals that receive a high priority rank are accepted and become projects for the up-coming field season. Proposals that receive a medium-priority rank are accepted only if resources are available; all other proposals are dropped.

Once a proposal is accepted, it becomes a current project with its own PROJECT PAGE on the website. The project plan, research updates and reports will all be found on the PROJECT PAGE.

Click here for the proposal submission form.

*Proposals must be received no later than one month before the advisory meeting to be considered for the next field season. For alternatives, contact
