Using the Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) in the
Lake States is a 16-hour workshop that has been delivered twice. Intended
for students who have at least completed the NWCG course S290 (Intermediate
Wildland Fire Behavior), it includes both background concepts and practical
exercises for making fireline assessments, considering prescription windows,
and daily decisions.
Using FLAME for Fireline Fire Behavior Assessments is presented as an 8 hour workshop to reinforce the concepts and practice the skills required to make fireline assessments using the FLAME tools introduced in the NWCG course S290 (Intermediate Wildland Fire Behavior).
Fuel Moisture Monitoring is conducted as a 2 hour web conference to introduce Lake States users to the National Fuel Moisture Database and prepare them for creating data sites and data entries for their locations.
Using the Composite Burn Index (CBI) is conducted as a 4 hour workshop in the field, where participants are introduced to the CBI protocol, practice data collection, and discuss uses and role in a burn monitoring program.
WFDSS Fire Behavior Tools is a 12 hour workshop where participants learn how to navigate the incident and analysis areas of the Wildland Fire Decision Support System (WFDSS). Within the analysis section, techniques for evaluating landscapes, calibrating modeled fire growth and behavior, and making short-term, near-term, and FSPro projections to support decision-makers are demonstrated and practiced.
