Wildland Toolkit is a calculator and reference guide for wildland firefighters. With it, you can predict fire behavior much like a weather prediction. Just enter the fuel, weather, and topography information and Wildland Toolkit will generate:
--RH and Dewpoint
--Fine Dead Fuel Moisture
--Probability of Ignition
--Rate of Spread
--Direction of Max Spread
All 54 of the new fuel models are supported, with a guide to select the proper fuel model, complete with sample photos.
NOTE: There are no known calculation errors in this version. We will immediately fix any problems reported to us directly.
Wildland Toolkit is not a tutorial on wildland fire behavior, so if the terms above do not make any sense, then this application will not teach you. It is assumed that you know the same background information that is presented in an S290 or S390 class. The calculations done in the Wildland Toolkit are similar to what is done with the BEHAVE software, but you will find the user interface much easier to use.
--In addition, numerous safety checklists and reference guides are included, such as watchouts, fire orders, safety zones, watchouts, structure defense, sizeups, crew briefing, after action reviews, LCANS, and complexity analysis etc.
--Photos and diagrams are provided for cloud types, hand signals, common wildland tools, firefighting aircraft, and ICS org charts.
--Interactive practice quizzes are included for basic wildland fire, CPR, NIMS IS-700, S230 and S290.
--ICS reference guide with position descriptions, an index of forms, and incident typing
--Pack Test Timer guides you through your pack test and tells you your current pace and expected finish time ***
--Cool Slope Calculator uses your phone to tell you slope
--And if that's not all, the IRPG is provided in PDF form
*** Pack Test timer uses GPS. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. GPS is not used if the Pack Test is stopped.
