R4 Director of Fire and Aviation Management
US Forest Service - Intermountain Region
Sue has been the Director of Fire and Aviation for the Intermountain Region of the US Forest Service since 2009. The Intermountain Region has a busy fire workload and the region employs over 1,000 firefighters. As a trained Fire Ecologist with degrees from Oregon State and the University of Idaho, she recognizes that our best chance to succeed in safe and effective fire suppression is to treat landscapes to make extreme fire behavior unlikely and to protect values while unplanned ignitions do the heavy lift of restoration at meaningful scales. Her passion is taking care of our people while working to improve the wildland fire system.
