Fire Behavior Discussion

Figure 41 -- Time/distance diagram depicting the speed and distance covered by the firefighters hiking up the last portion of the West Flank Fireline versus that for the fire. The data used for this figure were obtained from appendix B. The high and low firefighter travel rates were obtained by actual reenactments by two physiologically different adult males (see table B-4). Note that the actual speed of the West Flank Fireline Group was slower than the lowest reenacted values. The fire spread rates are approximate values taken from table B-8.
