Announcing the North Atlantic Fire Science Exchange! Thank you for becoming a member of the North Atlantic Fire Science Exchange. The leadership team is very excited to introduce the Exchange and we realize that without all of your input and support, we would never have had a proposal that succeeded. Our Exchange is funded by the Joint Fire Science Program, which is a cooperative effort of six federal agencies and our Exchange completes the coast to coast coverage of Fire Science Exchanges. We include 11 U.S. states from Delaware to Maine and 3 Canadian provinces in the North Atlantic region.
