Workshops will consist of 6 hours of training (with an hour break for lunch) from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They will be led by Dr. J. D. Carlson, OSU fire meteorologist and OK-FIRE program manager, and consist of a combination of presentations and lab exercises in which attendees will get hands-on experience with the OK-FIRE website.
Registration is required and can be done by contacting Monica Mattox (firstname.lastname@example.org; 405-325-1788; 405-325-2541) at the Oklahoma Climatological Survey. Applications will be accepted up through the Friday before each workshop or until space is filled up, whichever occurs sooner. There is no cost for the workshops, aside from travel costs to and from the location. More information about each workshop (including directions) will be sent out the Monday before each workshop date. Workshops will be filled on a first register, first served basis. Please note again that these workshops are designed only for those who directly or indirectly work with wildland fire, and only those who fall into these categories should register.
Attendees will learn about fire weather, fire danger, and smoke dispersion products available on OK-FIRE, how to use them, and how to access past, current, and forecast values via maps, charts, and tables. Wildfire, prescribed fire, and smoke applications will be covered.
