Report For Beaver Creek Fire Released
Hailey, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - The North Carolina State University’s Fire Chasers Research Team report on the 2013 fire season has been released. In 2013, the Fire Chasers Research Team at North Carolina State University developed a series of incident performance measures in collaboration with incident response and land management professionals. The goal of this effort was to provide metrics that can help improve interagency coordination and communication during complex, large scale wildfires. In the summer of 2013, data on these incident response outcomes were collected from 22 Type I and Type II wildland-urban interface fires in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. The report summarizes the findings from the Beaver Creek Fire in the areas of interagency network performance, incident management team performance, use of social media and incident learning and capacity building.
