S-290 Unit 12: Gauging Fire Behavior and Guiding Fireline Decisions examines how fire behavior is evaluated and changes are identified, and how these changes affect fireline decisions. Topics in this module build upon information covered in previous units and applies it to calculating safety zones, evaluating limitations of suppression efforts, and using tools used to predict fire behavior. The FireLine Assessment MEthod (FLAME) is introduced, and cases are provided to allow learners to apply this method to typical fireline conditions. This module is part of the Intermediate Wildland Fire Behavior Course.
