Ember Award Presented to Dick Rothermel
The IAWF's Ember Award for Excellence in Wildland Fire Science was presented to Mr. Richard Rothermel by Dr. Domingos Viegas at the Large Wildland Fires Conference Awards Banquet in Missoula, May 2014. Mr. Rothermel was in attendance along with his wife Marjie. Dr. Viegas and 50+ others nominated Mr. Rothermel for this prestigious award.
He stated "I consider that Richard Rothermel gave a lifelong contribution to forest fire science and management that deserves a recognition by the entire community. Although he has already received some prizes and many expressions of recognition in my opinion the Ember Award is the most prestigious and appropriate form to express our recognition and gratitude for his work and career."
Congratulations Mr. Rothermel!
