Minnesota Smoke TOOLS Workshop

Mar 13, 2018 - All Day
Midwest Interagency Fire Center - 402 SE 11th St, Grand Rapids, MN 55744

Overview of the Smoke TOOLS Workshops:

Smoke Management and Smoke hazards are one of the most important things to plan for and manage when doing a prescribed burn, or to consider during any wildfire suppression. This one-day workshop has been designed to provide hands-on experience with new, easy-to-use, online tools, and is designed for anybody working in wildland fire – a good introductory workshop for those who have not had much smoke modeling and management exposure, or as an excellent refresher for those who have had another smoke course. Bring example burns/ burn units from your home area, and a laptop, and we will work on evaluating smoke issues with these burns; if you do not have a burn unit in mind we will provide examples for you.

Instructor: Trent Wickman, Air Resource Specialist for MI-MN-WI, Eastern Regional Office, USDA - Forest Service.

Cost: $20 SFEC members, $40 others; Lunch will not be provided
