Abstract
FPInnovations collaborated with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry and other research agencies to conduct two experimental fires in mulched fuels under very high fire hazard conditions. This study documented fire behaviour and compared it to other experimental fires in mulch fuel beds at other independent study sites. Documentation of fire behaviour in this novel fuel type can inform wildfire managers of potential fire behaviour and suppression challenges.

Abstract
Treatment options are needed to enhance the fire performance of thin structural members without generating additional char. This review explores potential opportunities for low-char fire retardant treatments and fire protective coatings for wood products, and briefly discusses the technical and code-based barriers to their adoption.
