From the introduction: Information technology has been put to work to improve fireline safety. Wildland firefighters and fire managers can now take a fireline safety training course at home on their PC's, using a CD-ROM with the latest in interactive multimedia technology. The course, 'Wildland Fire-Safety on the Fireline,' was completed in July 20000 by a Canadian consortium consisting of the Environmental Training Centre, Hinton, Alberta; the National Training Working Group, Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre, Winnipeg, Manitoba; and Christie Communications and Vicom Multimedia, both of Edmonton, Alberta (Thorburn and others 2000).
