Invitation to participate in the Joint Fire Science Program Knowledge Exchange Evaluation

You are invited to participate in the national evaluation of the JFSP fire science consortia. We hope you can take the time to fill out the survey – getting a variety of responses really does help to justify our program’s ongoing funding, and getting your feedback helps us to do our job more effectively. Thanks for taking the time. The survey link is:

If you were at AFSC’s workshop last week, you heard us offer a chance to win “fabulous” prizes for responding to the survey. Sorry to report we just learned that offer conflicts with the survey protocol, so please do NOT notify us that you have answered the survey. But we will offer chances for “fabulous” prizes to folks who like the AFSC Facebook page before April 28. Thanks!

Here’s the official invitation from the evaluation team at University of Nevada:
We invite you to participate in the continuing evaluation of the Joint Fire Science Knowledge Exchange Program. This web-based survey focuses on the communication and application of fire science research results and resources. We are specifically interested in knowing about your opinions and experiences with the Fire Science Consortium in your region. This project is based out of the University of Nevada, Reno and includes all of the JFSP Consortia around the country. Your responses will be used to help the JFSP Consortia address your fire science information needs and ultimately enhance fire science delivery.

The survey will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete. We realize that some of you may have completed a version of this survey in the past. Continued participation of prior respondents and participation from new respondents is essential in helping the JFSP consortia progress towards their goals. Your participation in this study is voluntary, and all of your responses will remain completely confidential. Please click on the following link or copy  and paste the link into your web browser:

If you have any questions or problems accessing the survey, please contact Evaluation Coordinator Lorie Sicafuse at, telephone (775) 327-2397.

Thank you for your time and involvement in helping us learn more about how to improve fire science delivery and communication in your region.
