Ann Walker Consulting offers a multitude of services to assist your community, organization, and/or agency. Ann specializes in providing education about our nation's wildfire response structure and natural resource management policies.  She assists several clients and non-profit organizations to respond to the increasing need for wildfire prevention, detection, response, and recommendations for post-fire recovery for our most vulnerable communities. Her expertise is often utilized by Non-Government Organizations and companies that offer services and cutting edge technologies for improving preparedness and operational needs of our wildland fire services and communities at risk from wildfire and post-fire flooding.

Ann brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to every fire, forestry, and aviation project she takes on providing leadership and convening interested stakeholders to resolve conflict by identifying shared solutions. She has worked with many levels of government and non-profit organizations to develop and implement reformed policies and improved procedures. 

Ann has co-authored many national policies and guidance documents including the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy and the Community Guide to Preparing And Implementing A Community Wildfire Protection Plan. 

Ann is available for public speaking to educate and energize your group for fire prevention and mitigation strategies.

The PNWER mission is to increase the economic well-being and quality of life for all citizens of the region, while maintaining and enhancing our natural environment.
