From the introduction:'This Technical Note is an attempt to summarize what has been done in a number of areas of the world to provide adequate forecasts of fire danger in terms of past, present and forecast weather conditions. It is not intended to be complete operational manual but is intended to be a guide to the meteorologist who may be unfamiliar with the problems of forestry of forest fires, but who is faced with the problem of organizing a program of meteorological service to assist such organized forest protection agencies.'
