Our mission at the Great Basin Fire Science Exchange (GBFSE) is to provide scientific information on fire and fuels that meets the needs of sagebrush ecosystem management.  Because of our mission focus, this GBFSE website also serves as the Science Support Center for Secretarial Order 3336.

The May 19, 2015 Department of the Interior report titled, "An Integrated Rangeland Fire Management Strategy" named the Great Basin Fire Science Exchange and the Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative (GBLCC) as co-leads on Appendix A, Section 7(b) viii - Science & Research, Action Item #4: "Develop or identify a primary online science delivery system to allow easier access to published science products and other science information."
