The National Wildfire Coordinating Group (NWCG) coordinates wildland firefighting efforts among federal and state agencies. NWCG assigned the Missoula Technology and Development Center (MTDC) to coordinate the national effort and serve as the focal point for on-going and future studies on the effect of forest fire smoke on firefighters. This status report, the fourth in a series, provides an update on project activities.
