News release: Biden-Harris administration announces members to wildfire commission
Ten people from California — including a Placer County water manager, a North Coast tribal representative, and experts in fire science, prescribed fire and the health impacts of air pollution from wildfire – have been named as primary or alternate representatives to a new federal Wildland Fire Mitigation and Management Commission. They are among 36 non-federal members, 11 federal members and three co-chairs on the commission, which will play a key role in recommending ways that federal agencies can better prevent, mitigate, suppress and manage wildland fires. It will also recommend policies and strategies on how to restore the lands affected by wildfire.
