Fire Behavior Assessment Team

Fire Safety in Chimneys & Canyons

The Fire Behavior Assessment Team (FBAT) is a unique module that assesses fire behavior on wildfires, wildland fire use fires, and prescribed fires. We measure pre-fire fuels, fire behavior using sensors and video cameras, and post-fire conditions. We predict fire acceleration and potential arrival times in chimneys and canyons for egress and evacuation comparisons and safety zone locations.
