Megafires, Technology, and Innovation

Founder Dr. Natasha Stavros wrote an article for The Conversation about bringing tech innovation to wildfires. Dr. Stavros co-led a workshop at the Keck Institute for Space Studies (KISS) affiliated with California Institute of Technology to bring together tech innovators, fire operators, policy makers, and scientists to discuss how to fire fires smarter.

Together this group made 4 recommendations for smarter firefighting as megafires menace the US:

  1. Better, more accessible fire technology
  2. Coordinating everyone and sharing data
  3. Funding, with a role for private companies
  4. Building resilient communities
