Presenter(s): Robert Ziel, LaWen Hollingsworth, Rick Stratton, Jon D. Rieck
Description: This presentation is the first of two within a webinar entitled "Sharing Fire Behavior Practices & Lessons Learned: Fire Season 2015". As the fire behavior community aspires to promote best practices amongst a range of fire behavior experience, this webinar strives to share information regarding lessons learned from fire behavior prediction on 2015 wildfire incidents. Every fire season there are parts of the country that receive a lot of fire activity. Fire-fighting resources are assigned and consequently numerous fire behavior specialists begin focusing on these areas to ensure fire-fighter safety and to develop short-, mid-, and long- term fire behavior simulations to support these efforts and management decisions. An incredible amount of knowledge is gained and shared during these short periods of intense focus; yet often these fire behavior practices and lessons learned are recorded, stored, and not shared beyond the incident.
