Current Goals of the KPFC Research Committee are:

  1. Prioritize research needs both from Kentucky and from regional fire practitioners.
  2. Facilitate the development and dissemination of easily readable summaries of Kentucky ecosystem-related fire research.
  3. Work to involve partners in development of fire-related information.
  4. Keep Membership informed when new research findings become available.
  5. Develop reporting recommendations and a portal for reporting fire activity in Kentucky.
