Fire Shelter Field Test on DVD

Image of the Comparing the New Generation and Old-Style Fire Shelters May 5, 2006 Test DVD cover.The DVD "Comparing the New Generation and Old-Style Fire Shelters May 5, 2006" (0751–2D01–MTDC) shows how the two types of fire shelters performed during a field test at a prescribed burn. The test shows that the New Generation fire shelter can provide more protection than the old-style fire shelter. Although the old-style fire shelter has saved many lives and prevented serious injuries, neither the old-style nor the New Generation fire shelter guarantees a firefighter’s safety.

For information about the New Generation fire shelter, contact Tony Petrilli, project leader (phone: 406–329–3965; e-mail: apetrilli@fs.fed.us).
