From the text...'Fire shelter training has for years stressed the importance of deploying fire shelters where there is no direct flame contact. However, the results of recent tests by the Missoula Technology and Development Center, a part of the USDA Forest Service's Fire and Aviation Management division, have shown that avoiding flame contact is far more important than realized.' © Society of American Foresters.
