Building a More Inclusive Fire Management Culture for Resilience & Sustainability

This document is part of a series of thematic fact sheets from the PERFACT cooperative agreement, looking at the Women-in-Fire Prescribed Fire Training Exchanges (WTREX), first offered in 2016. Numerous quotes from participants highlight the power of these events for building skills, support networks and, ultimately, a more robust fire management system.


Promoting Ecosystem Resilience and Fire Adapted Communities Together (PERFACT) is a cooperative agreement between The Nature Conservancy, USDA Forest Service and agencies of the Department of the Interior. The agreement supports the Fire Learning Network (since 2002), Prescribed Fire Training Exchanges (2008), Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network (2013), Indigenous Peoples Burning Network (2016) and other efforts that bring people together to collectively identify and meet our wildfire challenges.
