Title: Training Package for Land Management Tools Sponsored by the JFSP: Photo Series, FCCS, Consume 3.0, and FEPS

Project Proposal Abstract: Knowing the amount of biomass and other fuel characteristics, and potential fuel consumption and emissions production is becoming increasingly important for making informed decisions on the use of prescribed fire, wildfires and wildland fire use fires. Consequently the Joint Fire Science Program funded the development of 4 fuels and fire management tools that included the Natural Fuels Photo Series, Consume 3.0, Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCS), and the Fire Emissions Production Simulator (FEPS). Since these tools work in tandem with each other, a web based tutorial technology transfer package and a stand alone instructor's guide and student workbook on how to use these products needs to be completed. The objective of this research proposal is to develop an on-line tutorial package that will provide land managers with the ability to use the Natural Fuels Photo Series, Consume, FCCS, and FEPS in their everyday prescribed fire and wildfire planning. We propose a web-based self-taught tutorial along with an instructor's guide and student workbook. It is anticipated that the web package will allow individuals to learn on their own. With the instructor's guide and student workbook, agencies can initiate a training program or add to an existing training curriculum. This technology transfer package will be a scientifically based support tool that can be used to improve fire management decision processes (AFP-2004-4, task #1).
