Updates to fire mapping, fire zones, the Spring outlook, communications, air operations, UAS operations, equipment, and morew were all discussed in detail.


Our own Chief Meteorologist Tom O’Hare presented this year’s Spring Outlook to the group.

The bad news is the forecast is for more of the same we’ve seen this winter: Mild/warm and on the dry side.

The DNR UAS’s (unmanned aircraft system) are impressive and can do a multitude of operations, whether it be helping fight fires, prescribed burns, or aerial mapping.

Unfortunately, this year’s wildfire season has already started and expectations are it will be a very active season.
