IAWF Meeting

I just returned from the International Association for Wildland Fire meeting in lovely Raleigh, North Carolina.  The meeting was a great opportunity to meet new collaborators and learn about the newest research in wildland fire safety, fire weather modeling, and fuels.

One organization that stood out among the crowd was the International Fire Relief Mission that provides equipment and training to fire departments and wildland firefighters overseas.  If you have a spare minute or are looking for a volunteer opportunity, go check them out!

The conference was live-tweeted by several people including @TTU_firelab, @SEFireScience, @FireScienceGOV, and @NCForestRanger.  Check out all the tweets at #FireFuels13.
