SC Recon manages the Department of Natural Resources’ Firewise in the Classroom Program. Firewise is a national program that builds awareness and preventive action for wildfire risk. DNR offers the Firewise in the Classroom curriculum and instructor support for free statewide. Students in grades 8-12 perform risk assessments for homes in their community using GIS and field data collection. They then present findings to local fire departments and city administrators. And there are opportunities for students to participate in mitigation actions in their communities.
Students get to explore careers in forestry, ecology, and fire service while contributing to real-world solutions.
