Researchers in Boise, Idaho, worked with colleagues on both sides of the country to develop a tool that gives wildland fire managers detailed air-quality information. The tool enhances use of the web-based Wildland Fire Decision Support System (WFDSS). Managers use WFDSS for assistance in making strategic and tactical fire suppression and management decisions. Users can access this tool via the internet, using the air quality portal, and can enter in a few parameters to help them get results that evaluate smoke concentrations, smoke dispersal, particulate levels and more. One potential result is creating smoke dispersal models that can be used to anticipate the long-term impacts of heavy smoke in a specific community. That information is then available to decision-makers as they considere how to proceed in managing a fire. Work to refine the tool is ongoing. The Rocky Mountain Research Station in Boise collaborated with the Pacific Northwest Research Station and with Forest Service Fire and Aviation Management staff in Washington, D.C. to create this tool.
