Research and Analysis

The WFGI promotes wildland firefighter safety through research & analysis of equipment and new technologies, along with close analysis of fatalities and injuries.  We support improvements to firefighting equipment & tools based on research, data collection and the study of how these can be applied to the current wildland effort.  The WFGI advocates positive safety changes for the wildland firefighting profession, and submits findings and solutions to the firefighting community.  We are a watchdog group for firefighting safety, where everyone can safety and anonymously report safety allegations.  The WFGI conducts research into the allegations, making the findings public, while promoting positive change.
