Abstract
Given the benefits that resource roads provide to economic and social well-being, it is important to understand the impacts of a changing climate on resource roads and infrastructure. As the forest industry and governments move toward creating resource roads that are resilient to climate change, an early step in the adaptive management process is to assess the risks and vulnerabilities of infrastructure to climate change.

Abstract
In an effort to ensure that all materials, products and assemblies are treated in an equitable manner, a very simplistic form of a risk assessment methodology was employed to determine the cost benefit of a three-storey business occupancy - combustible versus non-combustible construction (designed in compliance with BOCA requirements). Statistical data was used to determine the number of fire fatalities in both construction types and to provide the probabilistic values required as input for the decision tree. The number of fire fatalities was then multiplied by the dollar value assigned to demonstrate that the combustible office building does not pose a more serious threat to occupant safety than does the non-combustible office building. Further, in the event of a fire, since the combustible office building is less expensive to construct, it is more cost-effective than the non-combustible office building.

Abstract
Northwestern Alberta has been a focal point for agricultural expansion for many years. More recently, accelerated lands sales have led to the clearing of large tracks of land and significant burning projects aimed at preparing the land for agricultural use. Given the requirement for land owners to have burning permits during “Fire Season” (March 1st – October 31st) and the risks involved in large scale burning during fire season, sites are often differed to time frames outside the established fire season. Although windrow burning outside of fire season often poses less fire escape risk, other issues can arise and result in public safety concerns e.g. smoke, which can increase the potential for health issues and traffic accidents. Given these concerns local forestry and municipal authorities have engaged in discussions aimed at identifying potential burning options.
