The Fire Management Research Network (FMRM) is an online platform on the Working On Fire website ( for the purpose of sharing knowledge and ideas on fire management in South Africa. The Network aims to foster collaborative efforts in fire management across South Africa and will provide researchers, scientists and students in this field with a platform to interact, exchange and share their work. Very often researchers pursue their work in isolation from fire managers, hence limiting the impact of their work. This Network’s objective is to bridge the gap between applied management and academic work. Essentially the Network aims to serve as a link, contact and support for the South African, African and international fire management community and researchers.
