This lesson will introduce National Weather Service (NWS) forecasters to the communication strategies used for decision support services during wildland fire incidents. It also serves as a baseline for practices that leverage unique NWS capabilities to assist land management, firefighting, and emergency management entities in critical decision making. The learners will work through a simulation to see the effects of their communication choices on decisions made by fire personnel. The lesson replaces an earlier edition produced in 2008.
