The Ember Alliance and Guild Fire Management Program Transition

Purpose

Fire plays an essential role in shaping our forests. We follow nature’s model and use fire where it is needed to make communities more fire-adapted, restore ecosystems, encourage the next generation of forest stewards, and reduce the threat of unnaturally severe wildfire.

The Forest Stewards Guild is dedicated to supporting fire as a natural process in fire-adapted ecosystems through our Fire Management Program. We work on individual projects and at a landscape scale, to improve ecosystem health and increase wildfire resilience.

Goals

Our goals are to help make fire adapted forests vibrant and resilient. Implementing prescribed fire is a big part of this work and so is fostering fire-adapted communities. When communities take responsibility for the risk of living in fire-prone ecosystems, managers are better able to tend to the health of forests.

We are also committed to building a better way to do fire management. One that recognizes the inherent value of our employees, supports work / life balance, and provides an environment of growth. We recruit and support fire practitioners from traditionally under-served and underrepresented communities.
