We participate directly in fire operations to build capacity, to guide research and development, and to establish and maintain relationships.
For the past eleven fire seasons, staff from the NCLFA
have engaged in active, on-the-ground support of a number of wildland
fire and wildland fire use events. Incident support activities range
from infrared mapping of fire locations, fire and fuels behavior
modeling, internet communications support, computer mapping, post-fire
severity assessments, and digital database development for data
maintenance and archiving.
