On Fire: New Joint Fire Science Program Blog

My name is Tim Swedberg and I'm the Communications Director for the Joint Fire Science Program. I'm the big guy in the back row on the right.

We've been busy working behind the scenes at JFSP to improve the way we communicate with the wildland fire community, and to give you easier ways to connect to us. After fifteen months of researching how we can best serve you in the 21st century, I'm proud to announce the result of our efforts: 

You'll find a fresh, new look, a new logo, easier navigation and search functions, and links to all the new channels for staying up to date with the latest science findings and wildland fire management tools.

Our intent is to engage you in conversations about wildland fire science and management. If you can’t find what you're looking for, just ask and we will help as best we can.  Need local experts?  Check out our Regional Consortia in your neck of the woods.

Don’t hesitate to tell us how to improve or what you like. Let us know by commenting on and sharing this new blog. You can also subscribe to our Enews, and join the ever-expanding wildland fire conversation that’s taking place via social media right now. Follow us on Twitter, or join us on Facebook to take advantage of important information published daily.  Don't miss a word! 

Keep Smilin',
Tim Swedberg
Communications Director
