FireScience.org began in 2012 to provide quality data and information for students pursuing a career in fire science. We also provide tools and resources to help fire science professionals make well-informed decisions about their education and career training. 
 
The number of wildfires that occur each year is on the rise, and with that, there is a need for more people in this job sector and a greater public understanding of how to be fire safe. With this in mind, I have two guides that your community will find very helpful:
 
The first is for use in a school setting. The Fire Safety Guidebook helps students recognize fire risk factors and how to be safe at school and at home. It also includes resources for students with disabilities.
 
The second provides a list of 50 resources all related to fire science, including information related to fire science careers and programs. Top 50 Fire Science Resources is a great resource for those wanting to learn more about the wildland fire and forestry industries.
