From the text ... 'One area where great strides can be made is in the climatology of fire weather and its application to fire planning. Recent advances have been made in application of climatology to agriculture, and many of the same principles can be applied to forest fire weather problems.And lastly, there is room for great improvement in the cooperation between fire weather personnel and fire control managers. Much of the information is available; the problem is to get the information to the fire manager in a form and at a time that he can use it. Some effort has been made to develop ways of doing this. In particular, the fire behavior training courses and the fire generalship courses taught by the U.S. Forest Service for supervisory fire personnel have gone a long way in this direction....'
