The Fire Program Analysis Project (FPA) system encompasses fire planning units, across the country including the Central Oregon Fire Planning Unit (FPU). FERA is using the Fuel Characteristic Classification System to generate over 200 fuelbeds, crosswalk those fuelbeds to fire behavior fuel models, map the unit for fuelbed characteristics and fire potential, and evaluate mitigation measures to reduce the fire hazard.

A final report will document how the FCCS and fire hazard potentials for the Central Oregon FPU were derived, and alternatives for modifying fire hazard.

Estimated Completion Date: October 1, 2011

Fuelbed Development Team Lead: Roger Ottmar

Mapping Team Lead: Don McKenzie

Collaborators: Bill Johnson
