EDMG564 - Wildland Fire Mitigation and Management

 

A new normal is now present with respect to wildland fire occurrence. Mega-drought, depleted water resources, climate change-enabled forest insect infestations, reduced snowpack, and related impacts have resulted in earlier, more prolonged, and more deadly fire seasons in America’s natural wilderness regions. Mitigation of and adaptation to this new normal are important features of protecting the public that students, practitioners, and public officials must be aware of in order to effectively discharge their respective duties. This course will make current and future public officials aware of the challenge, the urgency of action, the opportunities available, and the leadership & management skills needed to guide society during this increasingly critical threat situation.
