'Documentation and analysis for fire behavior events should become a standard practice with Fire Behavior Analysts, and not 'a nice to do project'. The FBA has a responsibility bfore leaving a fire to tabulate pertinent data and to write a report that summarizesthe key factors affecting fire behavior of his or her fire. In the report, fire behavior projections would be compared to 'real time' fire behavior observations. Discrepancies between predicted and actual fire behavaior should be discussed.'
