2020 Fire Season Survey
This informal survey is an opportunity for the Wisconsin prescribed fire community to collect and share information with each other. Everyone's fire seasons looked different this year, with unique challenges and opportunities. This survey is a way for the community to participate in a collective After Action Review, and figure out ways to overcome these challenges in 2021.
Please take a few minutes to share your experiences with burning in 2020. Your responses will help shape a facilitated discussion during the November 10th WPFC meeting via Zoom.
