Research and Development

The CAL FIRE Research and Development (R&D) Program is currently placing a short-term pause on receiving new project proposals. The Research and Development program is currently expanding and reorganizing its resources to better serve CAL FIRE’s operational needs. Our short-term pause on project proposal submittals will extend to January 2023. 

Proposals that have been submitted as of 9/16/22 will still be reviewed and considered. Thank you and we look forward to the new year and working more closely with our partners as we seek to serve and safeguard the people and protect the property and resources of California. 

If you have additional questions, contact the R&D Program  at rdi@fire.ca.gov
