CWFC Frequently Asked Questions

The Colorado Wildland Fire Conference is currently held every 18 months.

Our upcoming conference will be in October 2024; followed by a conference in the spring of 2026.

This conference is geared toward professionals working proactively to improve wildfire outcomes in Colorado communities and landscapes such as Mitigation Specialists, Emergency Managers, Firefighters, Researchers, Foresters, Developers and Policy Makers. Anyone wishing to learn more about how they can reduce their community’s vulnerability to wildfire is welcome to attend.

The planning committee is comprised of individuals from these organizations.

The theme of the 2024 conference is Meeting the Moment.  

In an era where wildfires are both more frequent and intense, the 2024 Colorado Wildland Fire Conference will focus on meeting the challenges of our time, with the implementation of robust strategies to help our communities to adapt and live with wildfire.

Registration includes a variety of presentations incorporating the “Meeting the Moment theme. The rich content will also include optional networking events, exhibit/sponsor hubs, posters on FAC support around the state, and an interactive statewide strategy session on land use strategies and policy opportunities.
