With nearly two decades of experience in wildfire sciences, SWCA is a recognized expert in completing pre- and post-fire planning work throughout the United States.

We emphasize collaborative planning across large, multi-jurisdictional landscapes, working with federal, state, and local government agencies, non-governmental agencies, private industry, and communities. Successful resilience in the face of climate-driven wildfires requires planning ahead for all stages of the wildfire cycle: readiness, response, and recovery.

Our fire experts provide a full suite of services and customized plans to meet both large-scale, regional needs and those of small communities aligning with the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy.
