Last week, Blue Ridge RC&D and the Appalachian RC&D Fire Adapted Communities Coalition, attended the 15th International Wildland Fire Safety Summit and 5th Human Dimensions of Wildland Fire Conference in Asheville, NC. Fire researchers and practitioners from all over the world attended and shared valuable information, stories and insight regarding wildfires and humanity. Our coalition provided a panel session that had over 60 people attend. It was great to meet humans from across the globe with the same issues and concerns that we are dealing with. Excited to share and implement some new outreach and mitigation projects in 2019!
