Description

A short history of the fire weather service is presented with a report on progress made under the 'Federal Plan for a National Fire Weather Service.' The highlights of the plan and its application to the requirements of forest and range management interests in Alaska are stressed. The services now provided are contrasted with those services that are possible under the present level of meteorological development.
