The Fire and Environmental Research Applications (FERA) Team has developed an online tutorial package that teaches land managers how to use the Natural Fuels Photo Series, Consume v 3.0, Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCS), and Fire Emissions Production Simulator (FEPS) for their everyday prescribed fire and wildfire planning. The Consume 3.0 web-based tutorial is a user-friendly html application that can be viewed online or downloaded to a personal computer and viewed offline. It provides technical background about Consume 3.0, appropriate applications, and step-by-step instructions on how to use Consume 3.0. Each of the four tutorials contains case studies that provide sample applications in the boreal, southern and western regions of the United States (boreal and western case studies are still under development). In addition to highlighting sample applications, each case study demonstrates how the four land management tools can be used in tandem. An instructor's guide and student workbook associated with the Consume 3.0 tutorial are available for download. With the instructor's guide and student workbook, agencies can initiate a training program or add to an existing training curriculum. A Microsoft PowerPoint presentation used in the Regional Workshops to demonstrate how to use Consume 3.0 has also been made available for download.
