From the introduction: In two previous issues of Wildfire News & Notes, the values for the six standard components of the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index System (FWI) associated with the 1990 Stephan Bridge Road Fire (Vol. 6, No. 1, p.6) and the 1991 Spokane area fires (Vol. 6, No. 4, p. 6-7) were presented. We recently undertook to do the same for the Oakland-Berkeley Hills Fire of October 20,1991, in connection with advanced behavior training courses held in New Zealand during March and April 1993. Both the case study report and the videotape produced by the National Fire Protection Association on this very significant wildfire incident were utilized in the wildland-urban interface segment of the courses.
