Understanding Wildland Fire Behavior Project

This project is to find out how wildland firefighters experienced unexpected or extreme wildfire behavior in the past through right now, in this current fire season.

To do this, we need YOUR STORIES about wildfire behavior and to answer questions about your stories to understand how wildfire behavior has changed and what that means for wildland firefighters. quote-sml

This project comes out of the phrase that many of you have probably heard, along the lines of “I’ve never seen a fire act like that before” or “I see a lot more of that kind of fire behavior now.”

This will take about 5 minutes or so, and if you want to know more about the stories we collect and what we find out, there is a link at the end of the questions to submit a request for information.

Thanks for taking the time to tell us your story—
